All public sector employees should endeavour to embody the South Australian public sector values at work.
The Public Sector Values and Behaviours Framework has been developed in consultation with more than 600 public sector employees, including the Senior Management Council. The values make it easier for us to work together by forming a culture and a vision that we all share.
The values include:
We proudly serve the community and the South Australian government
We strive for excellence
We have confidence in the ability of others
We value every individual
- Collaboration and engagement
We create solutions together
- Honest and integrity
We act truthfully, consistently and fairly
- Courage and tenacity
We never give up
We work to get the best results for current and future generations of South Australians
Our values take into account the ever-changing needs of South Australians, and the place of government in helping to grow the state’s prosperity and wellbeing. The values should be used as a guide to the behaviours and practices that apply to all employees, regardless of position, technical expertise, or location and form the basis for the Code of Ethics and Behaviours Framework.
