Under Action 25 of the Civil Service Renewal Plan, the Civil Service is committed to carrying out a series of three biennial surveys, beginning in September 2015, and followed by another survey in 2017. The survey is developed and run by the Central Statistics Office. It asks civil servants for their views on working in the civil service, focusing on areas such as employee engagement, well-being, coping with change, and commitment to the organisation. Departments and Offices put in place a variety of initiatives in response to the results. This most recent survey was run from Monday 14th September and ran until Friday 2nd October 2020, and included a module regarding Civil Service Departments and Offices responses to, and staff experiences of, working remotely during COVID-19.
