About the workshop
This workshop will focus on:
• The reform agenda to develop the public sector workforce so that it can deliver enhanced public services
• The variety of new ways the UK civil service and other public sector organisations are managing and developing their people
• The critical role of HR and new models of HR management, including the UK’s reform agenda
• The best people management processes for delivering “best in class” talent and learning and development
• The latest thinking about improving the capability of civil servants to work collaboratively and deliver services effectively and efficiently.
What the workshop will cover
The workshop will include presentations and discussions and involve sessions with HR practitioners leading and managing people and others concerned with managing central Government Ministries and other public service organisations. It will also include visits to key relevant institutions and will provide ample opportunity for you to share your own experiences and to speak directly to those responsible for policies and decisions. We will include practical skills development and mock performance meetings and feedback sessions. You will be invited to give a brief informal presentation about your role and challenges for the future, so a small amount of preparation will be needed.
