Logan City Council wins national business award

Logan City Council’s Development Assessment team has been conferred with a national business award for five initiatives aimed at transforming the way the council operates.

The council received the 2018 Australian Business Award for Business Excellence for the initiatives, which were aimed at improving customer value and city development.

Initiatives include a mobility program providing Branch Investigators and Plumbing Inspectors with access to council information in the field, as well as an Australian-first web portal providing city drainage plans online.

In addition, the council’s Employee Attributes Development Framework involves developing a new position description format to facilitate the creation of unique individual development plans.

The council was also recognised for integrating drone technology to improve decision making and evidence gathering, and enabling real-time job reporting to enable management to move quickly to respond to increases in workload across the business.

Logan Acting Mayor Cherie Dalley said the award is “a tremendous acknowledgement of our team’s outstanding work” over a more than 12-month period.

“Planning and development is a huge responsibility for council and our team is always looking at ways in which they can innovate and do things differently to benefit the city and our customers,” she said.

“Inside council, we know our team is an industry leader in the development space, but it’s great to get this external recognition.”
