To meet the minute target, funding was provided to recruit additional advisors and both the council tax and housing benefit teams moved staff to sit within the contact centre, so calls could be resolved at the first point of contact.
The council’s housing benefit and bill paying online portals were also improved and self-service kiosks installed in Isle Help at County Hall.
Going forward, the team is looking at automating processes, developing online transactions to make services more accessible for customers and reviewing correspondence to make it easier to understand.
