Your chance to vote for Stockport Council as Digital Council of the Year

We have been shortlisted for Digital Council of the Year and we would love it if Stockport residents and businesses would vote for us.

Stockport Council has been shortlisted as a leading digital council, for a second time. The Digital Leaders 100 list recognises organisations across the UK that are leading the way in digital transformation. A public vote is now open and Stockport residents and businesses are invited to vote for the winner at www.digileaders100.com.

Steve Skelton, Head of Policy at Stockport Council said: “We believe that our residents deserve digital public services that are as good as those provided by their bank, supermarket or online retailer. To create these we are working closely with people across the Borough, listening to what they want and responding with digital products such as My Account, which allows personalised access to Council services 24/7. A public vote in support of our nomination would mean a lot to us.”

Digital Leaders is a nationwide initiative for promoting effective, long-term digital transformation across government, industry and charities. This is the 5th annual DL100 list and recognises people and organisations across the UK who are leading the way in digital transformation.

Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, Chair of Digital Leaders, said: “The Digital Leaders 100 list 2018 once again highlights the progress in digitally transforming the UK. Our community of Digital Leaders have shone a light on the many hidden heroes, quietly getting on with the nation’s digital transformation. It is fabulous to see such a strong list from outside London this year reflecting our own inclusive national programme and the growing importance of digital transformation on companies irrespective of size or sector.”

Robin Knowles, CEO of Digital Leaders, commented: “This is the annual list that money can’t buy. A truly independent list nominated by our growing community of 120,000 and shortlisted by 17 independent judges before a public vote puts them into a final order”.
