Survey reveals plummeting morale at DCLG

Growing dissatisfaction among civil servants at the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has been revealed by an annual staff survey of the civil service.

The Civil Service People Survey, which was conducted in October this year, shows that only 21 per cent of DCLG workers are proud to say that they work at the department, down ten percentage points on the 2010 survey.

Only 17 per cent of respondents said that they would recommend the DCLG as a place to work, down from 28 per cent last year.

Morale at the DCLG also compares poorly with the civil service as a whole, with 52 per cent of all civil servants saying that they are proud to work for their part of the service, and 46 per cent saying that they would recommend it as a place to work.

The survey showed that DCLG staff by and large have faith in their direct boss, with 72 per cent stating that they have confidence in their line manager.

However, only 22 per cent said that they believed that the executive team has a clear vision for the future of the DCLG.
