A wide range of information was garnered from the WeCount 2019 survey. This information can be distilled into two key themes:

What a good workplace looks like

What we need to work on

- supportive

- open-minded

- gender and sexuality diversity is normalised through knowledge

- good teams have supportive colleagues/managers

- diversity and difference are seen as strengths

- visible leadership

- values people for their abilities

- respectful and tolerant

- ensuring that judgemental behaviour is identified and appropriately dealt with

- ensuring that no one feels vulnerable and/or intimidated at work

- ensuring that all of our employees are comfortable being themselves at work

- improving recruitment and progression practices

Overall, workplaces within the public service were identified as good workplaces however this survey tells us where we can do better.
