Our guiding principles

If we are to deliver what we need to for the public sector, we need to be a great organisation ourselves. We want to be known for having a strong and well supported team with a smart, positive, can-do culture, focused on excellence in service delivery.

As the custodians of the codes of conduct we understand that the way we work is integral to our reputation and our impact. 

We are committed to working in the following ways:

  • We are outward focused – responding to and anticipating the needs of Victoria’s 1,854 public sector employers and 354,800 strong public sector workforce. 
  • We care about our workforce – their wellbeing and development. 
  • We are collaborative – building trusted relationships, sharing information and expertise, and working with our public sector partners to achieve common goals. 
  • We are innovative and solution focused – we explore new possibilities and ways of working to deliver better outcomes. 
  • We are intelligence-led – providing evidence-based insights and advice that supports the public sector to deliver for all Victorians. 
  • We make the best use of government resources – to deliver sustainable and effective outcomes. 
  • We are inclusive – and work to promote equity of opportunity for all. 
  • We create safe spaces – to seek out and hear the voices of people with lived experience. 
  • We respect – the valuable contribution First Nations voices and leadership provide to the public sector.
