The Berkeley People Lab aims to transform the public sector, by producing cutting-edge research on the people in government and the communities they serve. We collaborate with governments and other stakeholders to co-design and evaluate strategies that can strengthen the public-sector workforce, improve public service delivery, and foster an engaged democracy.

Strengthening the government workforce

To design and evaluate strategies to better recruit, retain, and motivate public servants

Improving public service delivery

To ensure justice and responsiveness in the implementation of government programs

Fostering an engaged democracy

To foster an informed, engaged, and equitable democracy
