In regards to the level of engagement, it may also be a factor that our current government simply doesn't believe in the civil service and therefore it is very difficult for someone to believe in their job. It is pretty obvious that the Conservatives don't believe in the value of the civil service and feel that many of the services it provides could be better provided by some organization in the private sector. In addition, it is clear that the advice of public sector institutions is regularly ignored by the associated ministers and that the ministers instead try to push a particular agenda on their ministries contrary to this advice. In terms of not being valued, this is a double whammy and would lead one to feel that their work was pointless ... not exactly a recipe for a high level of engagement in one's work.
