Strategic priority six—providing the right tools and workplace for our staff

We are a professional organisation of people with strong technical and specialist skills. To continue to attract and retain high quality, high performing people who enable us to achieve our purpose, we will invest in providing the right tools and workplace culture for our staff to excel.

We will support our staff to be strategically focused, engage with risk and seek opportunities.

We will provide an environment that supports diversity, and broad collaboration and engagement, driven by curiosity and actively engaged with technology.

We will make sure our staff feel empowered and trusted to deliver their best, and provide a workplace that complements their skills and experience. We will provide our staff with the right tools to ensure that they can work flexibly and deliver outcomes.

We will continue to embed the recommendations of our capability review, recognising that we are doing so in a different operating environment to when the recommendations were accepted, to ensure we have a strong and well equipped workforce able to meet the challenges in our environment today and into the future.

We will deliver and implement the APSC Workforce Strategy, Strategic Resource Framework and the Digital, Technology & Data Investment and Prioritisation Framework that prepares us for the future. We will continue to deliver the Governance Improvement Plan to meet our requirements under the PGPA Act.
