Looking to the future
A public service that serves a dynamic country like Canada must constantly adapt and adjust to meet the needs of Canadians. This is what renewal is all about — ongoing self-reflection and change to ensure that we are positioned to support the Government and serve Canadians now and into the future.
In 2013, when Blueprint first launched, the year 2020 seemed far away. And indeed, we set our sights high to define public service excellence and to take concrete steps to get us there.
Blueprint 2020 gave us a roadmap to renewal. In my last report, I committed to looking at how far we have come. We have been measuring our progress towards public service renewal, drawing from public service employee surveys and data on our workforce and the tools we are using.
The data speaks for itself: we are on the right path and have achieved a great deal in a short period of time. We have undertaken unprecedented engagement with public servants from across the country and around the world. We have become more innovative and collaborative, and have broken down silos that created barriers between organizations. And we have opened up conversations on issues like mental health, and diversity and inclusion.
Over the coming year, I will also be focusing a lot of my time and energy on the pay system.
I am eager to build momentum as we look at how we can continue to improve ourselves and to remain the best public service in the world.
