They say that 'time passes quickly when you are having fun '. Well not all our work in the service is fun but there is a lot of evidence to show that when we are engaged in interesting, meaningful work, trained to do it well, have a diverse range of people around us and have a good environment to work in then we are more effective and satisfied in in what we do.
Amazingly, Civil Service Local has been operating for over 5 years and is still going strong - although we are always doing new things. It is also good that fewer people are saying 'we've never heard of you - what do you do?' but instead 'Yes, I have been part of CS Local - what are you doing next?'
We are celebrating our first 5 years by tweeting an A-Z of some of our activities - take a look at @CivServiceLocal - and remember to visit this blog and read the monthly bulletins circulated in your area to find out what we are doing next.
If Civil Service Local has helped you over the last 5 years please let us know an help us celebrate this occasion.
