In 2012, the National Managers' Community (NMC) held a series of consultations with over 200 managers across the country. We asked them questions related to six themes: performance management, engagement, communication, pride and recognition, mental health, and changing and competing priorities.
The National Managers’ Community (NMC) held a "Dialogue with Senior Officials" session as part of its annual professional development forum held in May 2012 in Winnipeg. This is the fifth consecutive year the dialogue format was used to facilitate discussion between managers and deputy ministers.
Nearly 1,100 delegates attended the forum, including managers, executives and aspiring leaders.
The Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) is an employee survey of all federal public servants. This unique initiative on People Management Excellence provides each and every employee an opportunity to provide input on employee engagement, leadership, workforce and workplace, and organizational culture conditions in their work units, their department or agency and the public service at large. In 2011, the survey was conducted between August 29 and October 7.
The purpose of this diagnostic report is to provide the National Managers’ Community with the key findings from the 2011 PSES for managers compared with their results in 2008 and also with the public service-wide results in 2011 and 2008. The diagnostic report is divided into themes based on the People Management Excellence Drivers Model. Questions were assigned to four themes: Employee Engagement (EMP), Workforce and Workplace (WWP), Organizational Culture (ORG), and Leadership (LEA). The Key Findings by Theme section primarily focuses on questions comprising the four themes and their sub themes, 2011-2008 comparisons, and interesting findings from new and modified questions.
The National Managers’ Community (NMC) held a “Dialogue with Senior Officials” session as part of its Professional Development Forum held in May, 2011. This is the fourth time that a similar session is held, the last one having taken place at last year’s forum in Montreal.

A summary of research done over the past few years was presented at the NMC strategic planning session in March 2010. This information will be shared with senior officials and guide NMC efforts into the future.
The National Managers’ Community analyzed data from the 2008 Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) that pertains to the management community. Then NMC held focus groups across the country to discuss the results. This is a summary of that activity.
