Premier's Excellence Awards 2022

The Premier's Excellence Awards 2022 acknowledge South Australian public sector employees and teams who have consistently demonstrated exemplary service delivery while demonstrating the South Australian public sector values.

The Office of the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment is responsible for coordinating the Premier's Excellence Awards. This year, senior public sector leaders including chief executives, agency heads and senior human resource leaders and directors were invited to identify and nominate eligible individuals and teams within their agencies.

All of our public servants deliver an extraordinary range of services that help South Australians in their daily lives, and do so without seeking reward or recognition. However, it’s important to pause and take a moment to acknowledge those that go above and beyond.
