You may have noticed some changes to the look of www.globalgovernmentforum.com today, and I would like to tell you a bit about them.

From this week, we have revised how our stories are presented to readers. You will see a new menu across the top of the screen. Alongside links to the latest news, in depth content and grouping of stories from different regions which you will be familiar with (and pages for our excellent training and events programme and for our partners) you will see two new categories – policy & delivery and management & workforce.

These two categories represent a step change in the content we are producing. We want to provide more insight on both how the work of government is done (the essential policy and delivery skills that have proven so crucial in the coronavirus response) and the people who do it – the public service managers and workforce that have worked so hard throughout the last two years of an unprecedented global pandemic.

These two new categories will be the way we do this. Beneath each, you will find information about a host of topics that matter to you as public servants, ranging from sustainability to finance and procurement under policy & delivery, and then to pay and benefits, workplace and wellbeing, and recruitment, within management & workforce.

As well as providing the basis for the team here at Global Government Forum to provide the content you need on these key themes (which will range from news roundups to exclusive in-depth interviews and analysis, as well as webinars and how-to guides), it also provides a more intuitive way to navigate the GGF archive, grouping content together so it can provide ongoing useful information for readers on developments in key sectors.

For this is always our aim. To restate our goals, GGF exists to help leaders across national public sector organisations to learn from the work of their peers overseas, and to build links with fellow public and civil servants in other countries.

We believe this site refresh helps us do that, and we hope you agree. But I want to hear your feedback – good and bad – about the new site, and all elements of our content. So I would be grateful for any feedback you would be willing to share on how we can help serve you better. I can be emailed at [email protected], and would love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading.
