APS News November 2017

We're thrilled by the increasing readership of APS News across the country. With around 150,000 APS staff receiving APS News each month and click-throughs rising, we're inviting article submissions that showcase excellence across the APS. Email your stories to communication [at] apsc.gov.au.

Next week, we celebrate the remarkable efforts by individuals and agencies to foster diversity and gender equality in their workplace. The inaugural awards ceremony will be held in Canberra on Wednesday 8 November and everyone is welcome - tickets available online.

In the lead up to tabling the annual State of the Service Report (SoSR) in late November, we're sharing some of the latest trends across the APS via our SoSR blog. Included in this data is implementation of innovations. This was a key topic during our national Australian Government Leadership Network conference series, which focussed on the future of work. Keep an eye out for the 2018 series, to be launched in the coming months.
