The Corporate Plan

 

Corporate plan

Our values and behaviours

We have a clear set of values that outline how we do business. We share these borough-wide with our residents, partners and businesses.

Our behaviours

Internally we’ve translated these values into five co-operative behaviours which outline the priority areas of focus for staff at all levels. By living our values and behaviours we will deliver the change we need to meet our vision of building a co-operative borough.

A productive place where business and enterprise thrive

Outcomes

Open for business:

We’ll make Oldham a place to invest and do business

A regenerated borough:

We’ll bring forward key regeneration projects to grow the business base, create jobs and transform Oldham into a vibrant borough

A working borough:

We’ll work with partners to create job opportunities for local people ranging from training opportunities and apprenticeships to quality jobs that pay a decent wage.
