Our people are at the heart of making this agency successful and, since becoming Chief Executive just over two years ago, I have found them to be highly committed, talented and diligent – attributes that give me great confidence that we can successfully deliver even better public services.
I was incredibly pleased to see the improvements in our 2016 Civil Service People Survey results, especially our increased overall staff engagement score, which is testament to the hard work of our network of engagement champions and shows our people really are committed to making the agency a great place to work. However, this year we will strive for even better, and we aim to be a Civil Service high performer across our targeted People Survey measures, including staff engagement. To achieve this, we must continue to develop our people and to nurture their talent, whilst enhancing our approach to both how we reward and recognise their ongoing dedication – all of which are objectives within this plan.
