The results of the 2010 People Survey for the DCMS have been published. The survey is part of the annual Civil Service Survey, the second time a civil service-wide survey has been conducted. It is the largest of its kind in Britain and involves nearly 400,000 staff from across the Civil Service.
The DCMS survey ran during October 2010 and had a 69% completion rate across DCMS and we achieved an engagement score of 54%.
We have been encouraged by the improvement in leadership and managing change which has improved by 7% on last year’s figures. Other areas of improvement in DCMS have been organisational objectives and purpose.
However, there are areas in which we saw a drop in performance this year - namely, in relation to learning and development and our staff feeling valued.
The key messages will help to inform the future direction of our efforts to enable us to maintain and improve our position.
