Our main research and consulting areas are education, labour market and financial analysis. This, however, does not mean that we limit ourselves only to these fields – our analysts are familiar with a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research methods that we are happy to apply to problems outside the domain of our main research areas.
Values that characterise public service form the foundation for the ethical image of the entire country and thereby serve as reference points for the society as a whole. For this reason, a clearly defined set of values must be determined for public service, providing its common ethical anchor points, as well as concrete guidelines for acting in different situations. It is a recurring study, first conducted in 2005, with a goal to follow the trends in value attitudes and to map main ethical conflicts and problems that public service faces daily, but also to identify the expectations of public servants in prevention of those conflicts and problems.
