ABSTRACT
The article discusses the revision of the organizational staffing at Brent Council in England. The council's corporate management team created organizational design (OD) principles to realign staffing arrangements with council priorities. Target reductions in the cost of overtime pay, certain allowances and the cost of agency workers were identified by the council's human resources (HR) department. The staffing revision was sponsored by chief executive Gareth Daniel and is part of the One Council improvement and efficiency program.
