Launch of the Government Statistical Service (GSS) People Plan

The GSS People Plan is launched today.

It is endorsed by John Pullinger, the National Statistician, who launches it with this message:

The GSS People Plan links directly to the GSS strategy: Better Statistics, Better Decisions. It has been developed to provide clarity on the offer to everyone who is part of the GSS and specifically for members of the Government Statistician Group, (GSG) to help you grow, develop and maximise your potential.

The plan aims to build the professional capability of the statistical community by aligning its aspirations and goals against the six essential foundations of the Civil Service’s Professions Best Practice Framework (pdf, 378 KB) which are Governance, Leadership, Strategic Workforce Planning, Standards and Competencies, Curriculum and Qualifications and Networks.

This plan will bring about the change needed to the GSS/GSG community which will help you deliver a higher quality service to help the UK make better decisions. I am happy to provide my support and endorsement.
