UKRI operates within the public sector, and in a highly competitive market for employees with extremely specialised skills. It is imperative that UKRI maintains a high level of staff engagement in order to attract and retain the best talent. This requires a deep understanding of engagement levels, drivers and trends across different parts of the organisation so that evidence-based decisions can be made when planning targeted engagement interventions.

The survey provider appointed will develop a replacement for the previous Civil Service People Survey from which UKRI is now excluded. It provides a real opportunity for UKRI to introduce a regular rhythm of bespoke, user-friendly surveys that can provide relevant, robust data on staff engagement levels and give the insight we need to drive actions for improvement.
