Horizon scanning is a relatively new programme for Government, and we welcome challenge by others about the way we do things. In particular, we are always keen to improve the way we work with external experts and departments.
Over the past six months the Employee Engagement Team has been leading the "Being an Inspiring Team Leader" theme at Civil Service Live 2014.
The Analysis and Insight Team provides a central analytical hub for the Cabinet Office. Our professional economists, social researchers and statisticians provide the department with expert evidence and analysis for the development and delivery of policy.
Sitting within the Analysis and Insight team, the Employee Engagement team manages the annual Civil Service People Survey and supports Civil Service organisations to embed employee engagement via our community of survey and engagement managers in departments and agencies.
What is Horizon Scanning? It is often hard to think about the future. It is impossible to predict it with perfect accuracy. However, a lot of what government does has impacts that last for many years.
