A Question of Talent – A WiredGov Public Sector Survey Report
The public sector relies on its workforce to deliver crucial citizen services so talent acquisition is an essential component to ensure continued business momentum.
With this survey, we wanted to uncover the pain points that are inherent in this large pool and explore what can be done to alleviate these pressing concerns so that citizens never miss out.
Working with WiredGov and The Public Services People Managers Association (PPMA), we have gathered the views from across the UK public sector covering government, education, housing associations, blue light, healthcare and the third sector. What is fascinating is that the challenges are consistent across these industries despite the obvious differences in services.
The findings uncover how;
- 62% of survey respondents think talent scarcity is the biggest obstacle for public sector-wide recruiting.
- 75% say that data is informing recruitment decisions.
- Diversity remains a major issue in the public sector with 79% identifying room for improvement.
