Executive workforce reform

We’re reforming the Executive service in the public sector.

Reforms will:

  • make sure employment and remuneration arrangements for all public entities are clear, effective, efficient and transparent
  • support public sector employers in attracting, retaining and developing the best senior leaders
  • enable easy comparison of executive performance across agencies
  • ensure Victoria receives value for the remuneration it provides

A review of Victoria’s Executive Officer employment and remuneration framework was delivered to the Premier in July 2016.

In December 2016, the Premier directed VPSC to implement a number of the recommendations and to expand its review to the broader public sector.

This involved 3 key streams of activity:

  • review of executive employment across the broader public sector
  • a new approach to executive classification within the public service
  • an executive performance management framework within the public service.

A Classification Framework and Performance Management Framework for executives within the public service was delivered to the Premier in October 2019.
