Employee engagement across the Civil Service
- A network of Engagement Practitioners from across the Civil Service share knowledge and best practice in Employee Engagement with each other on a regular basis.
- Each organisation that participates in the People Survey has a representative on this network.
- Engagement Practitioners take a lead role in turning the survey results into tangible improvements through communications and action planning to build engagement within their organisations. Working at the front line of engagement in their organisations gives them a wealth of valuable knowledge and insight to share.
- This enables Engagement Practitioners Network to act as a virtual team that can understand and act upon the results of the Civil Service People Survey and to embed the principles of employee engagement across their organisations as well as within them. They also provide valuable feedback to the central Employee Engagement team on the survey and data analysis, and how we can drive further value out of the people survey process.
- The network also come together at events facilitated by the Employee Engagement team at Cabinet Office to solve specific problems and share their organisations’ experiences.
- Tackling their challenges together enables them to learn from each other and increase their knowledge and capability in the Employee Engagement field in a highly cost effective way.
Engaging for success
‘Engagement, going to the heart of the workplace relationship between employee and employer, can be key to unlocking productivity and to transforming the working lives of many, for whom Monday morning is an especially low point of the week.’
‘I believe the approach taken by the Civil Service is both additive and complementary to the approach outlined in my report’
