Workforce Essentials on SharePoint (WES)

As part of ensuring all our social workers are well supported and have easy access to the latest guidance and information, we provide Workforce Essentials held on Microsoft SharePoint, known as WES. This is an electronic resource of documents, including:

  • Guidance
  • Templates
  • Flow charts
  • Top tips
  • Good examples of practice
  • Proformas
  • Suggested agendas
  • Assessment formats
  • Credible research
  • Toolkits
  • Useful links to internal and external websites to support practice.

There are currently over 300 resources on WES reflecting different areas of practice.

What our staff say about WES

  • "It’s an excellent resource - I wish we had this before now"
  • "It’s good to have this useful stuff in one place"
  • "The guidance and templates will be good for me as I’m a new member of staff working in Wigan."
