Each and everyone one of us…has a responsibility to embrace change and… unlock and unleash the potential in each of us and the Australian Public Service.

The APS needs the most innovative workplaces and the most skilled workforce to keep step with the broader economy and meet the challenges of the future.

The APSC is working with agencies to ensure the APS has:

  • a modern employment framework
  • the very best workforce management practices, supported by a professional HR
  • the right skills and capabilities
  • a culture of innovation.

Our work spans six areas of reform:

Unlocking potential

reforming workforce management practices

Employee performance

getting the best out of everyone

Employee engagement

helping managers create engaged and productive teams

HR boost

building a great APS by boosting the capability of HR
