In a survey of 100 chief executives in local government, we have found that the psychological contract for local government, and indeed the wider public sector is fast changing.

Penna in the Public Sector
The public sector is facing unprecedented change. The future’s uncertain. But the one thing we do know is that, whatever happens, we’ll be able to help organisations respond.

Aviva wanted their graduate campaign to reach more people. The campaign revolved around their brand promise – that they treat customers and employees as individuals. At its heart was a website that you could personalise - from pictures and promos, to the actual copy and album covers in a special lastfm widget.
Devon and Cornwall Police underwent a challenging Workforce Modernisation programme to shape the Force to meet the policing needs of today’s communities and become a top-performing Force by 2012. Working in close partnership with the Devon & Cornwall Police, Penna developed a programme of support for individuals affected and timetabled delivery to match the rolling process over a 14 month period.

Following a successful meeting with the Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, Penna was instructed to identify an Interim Programme Director to lead the demerger of the organisation creating a new regulatory body and a professional membership body
