On Wednesday 2nd November, Localis will launch a new report on the future of the ‘public service ethos’, kindly sponsored by Grant Thornton.
Discussion at the event will ask whether the ‘public service ethos’ still exists. It will also look at whether it is uniform and national, or if a new emergent generation of workers is less attached to it, and if it has more or less resonance in different sectors (e.g. NHS, local government) and regions.
The event will also assess whether private sector involvement in public services has had a positive or negative effect on the ‘public service ethos’, and what the relationship between public and private should be.
