Port Phillip City Council Says...

Although turnover continues to be higher than target, the result has continued to reduce as the year progressed and we have finished the year closer to the metropolitan benchmark. Succession planning and talent management remain as a high priority. Significant reduction has been experienced and is returning to the metropolitan average (14 per cent). Council staff continue to be highly sought after by other councils and Victorian Government.
