What is in store for government this year? Whitehall Monitor 2020 launch

The Institute for Government launched Whitehall Monitor 2020, our annual report on the size, shape and performance of government and the civil service in the last 12 months. But as well as looking at what the data tells us about the past year, and with government and civil service reform in the news, our panel considered what it all means in the years ahead. How much of a problem is staff turnover? Does the civil service have the right skills for the future? What will happen to major government projects? What will the future shape of government look like? Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director at the Institute for Government, presented the key findings. We heard responses from: Chris Cook, Partner and Editor at Tortoise Media Charlotte Pickles, Director of Reform Nitika Argawal, Chief Operating Officer at Apolitical The event was chaired by Alex Thomas, Programme Director at the Institute for Government.
