People Strategy for the Civil Service

Published: 26 March 2019
From: Department of Public Expenditure and Reform

People are the most important drivers of success in the Civil Service. It is incumbent on us to put the right tools and supports in place so that civil servants are empowered to excel individually, in teams, and in the departments and offices in which they work. Building on this, this Strategy is organised around three broad priorities:

  • be an employer of choice
  • build the workforce of the future
  • build, support and value managers as people developers

People Strategy for the Civil Service 2017-2020

This Strategy has been developed in line with the commitment in the Civil Service Renewal Plan to build strategic HR capability in the Civil Service.
