The Civil Service is committed to developing inclusive workplaces. We are refreshing our approach based on new evidence of what works.

The focus will be on embedding best practice, ensuring the Civil Service acts as an exemplar employer.

Senior officials are consulting Departments and staff on the new approach, and are working closely with Ministers from across Departments who have an interest.
