A few times a year the good people over at Power to Persuade turn over the blog to the Public Service Research Group for a week. Over that week we run a number of pieces based on work that we are doing across the group. In the recent PSRG week one of the pieces that ran was based on a chapter that I wrote with colleagues at PSRG on the development and recruitment of the public service workforce. This chapter comes from the book I was involved in editing on the future of the public service, published by Springer.
In this piece we delve into issues of development and recruitment employing a social learning framework. We outline four distinct elements to this approach that we argue can serve as a framework for building workforce capability and supporting change within the public service.
The piece can be found here and if you go to the site you can also find the other great pieces from PSRG colleagues.
