In December, for the first time, the monthly award for 'A Brilliant Civil Service' will be framed around a specific initiative - activity by teams or individuals towards the Defra-backed Year of Green Action.
A great place to work
A range of blogs illustrating the theme of the same name, one of the four supporting pillars of the vision of A Brilliant Civil Service.
The strapline for this theme is: "A brilliant Civil Service - a great place to work. It will continue to be inclusive, flexible, modern and connected, sitting at the heart of a wider public service. In everything we do we will encourage openness, challenge, innovation and excellence."
The three other pillars of the vision are: Improved outcomes; Effective leaders; Skilled people.
