Our achievements as an employer
Our relationship with the Trade Unions
In July 2009 we signed another agreement with our recognised Trade Unions. This agreement builds on the excellent working relationship that already exists between management and Unions in our organisation and confirms the continued commitment by both to work together in a spirit of partnership on all matters of common interest.
Studies across the public and private sectors reveal that successful organisations have employees that are highly engaged in their work. Employee engagement is driven by several factors and we work to ensure they are supported across our organisation in many different ways. Our internal research shows that the Welsh Government civil servants have high levels of employee engagement compared to other government departments.
Investors In People (IiP)
IiP is an external award which demonstrates our commitment to our people, both internally and externally. We were first accredited as an IiP organisation in 1999. In June 2009 we were awarded the Silver Status, which is very unusual for an organisation of our size and complexity and we are the first mainstream government organisation in the UK to be awarded silver.

Skills Strategy Accreditation
The Skills Strategy for Government was agreed in January 2008 by all central government employers. A peer review panel met in 2010 to assess progress by all government departments and devolved administrations. The Welsh Government scored an unprecedented maximum points in all areas of our Skills Strategy approach by a peer review panel.
The Stonewall Index is the definitive national benchmarking exercise showcasing Britain’s top employers for recruiting lesbian, gay and bisexual staff.
