People Matters Network (PMNet) is pleased to provide some interim results into the challenges facing those who work in research, intelligence and engagement across the public sector.

The survey has just closed and the final report will be produced and circulated to all participants in June.
The interim results provide some valuable insights into new and emerging challenges for the profession and we have drawn out some key messages for professional bodies, employers of research and engagement professionals and those looking to get the very best from those working in the profession.

Our final report will be based on the views of between 200 and 300 research and engagement professionals working across a number of different agencies. Of particular interest will be the similarities and differences that we uncover.
