e-Discussion on Reinvigorating the Public Service
What motivates public servants to work well? The UNDP Global Centre for Public Service Excellence (GCPSE) and the GSDRC are hosting the first of a series of online discussions on reinvigorating the public service. They aim to engage experts, practitioners and policy makers in a global dialogue about 'what works' (and doesn't work) in public service. The first discussion is on the Motivation of Public Service Professionals.
Have you worked on a relevant project, witnessed a case where challenges have been successfully addressed or a failure from which you drew important insights? You are invited to share your experiences and observations, especially about:
- the right mix of incentives (both financial and non-financial) and their impact;
- citizen engagement and its impact on public service motivation;
- retention of the intrinsic motivation of public service employees.
Contributions will be used to produce a report and to inform discussion at the second Public Service Dialogue, to be held in Singapore later this year.
