Following the establishment of the Office for the Public Sector and the appointment of a new Commissioner for Public Employment, IPAA SA presented a special briefing for all members of the public sector on the future of public sector reform and renewal.
Over the last year and a half Change@SouthAustralia has established a powerful reputation for creating a practical and innovative approach to reform. In particular, the 90-day projects have established the South Australian public sector as a collaborative and productive force in the State’s development. Over the next twelve months, the Office for the Public Sector will build on this work by focussing on the development of public sector leaders and partnerships with non-government sectors.
This session provided an overview of the future direction and outlined ways in which leaders from all sectors can become involved in this exciting program of work. Public sector employees were encouraged to extend invitations to external partners. The session featured:
- Hon Susan Close MP, Minister for the Public Sector, Minister for Manufacturing and Innovation, Minister for Automotive Transitioning
- Erma Ranieri, Commissioner for Public Sector Employment
- Dan Butler, Manager, Change@SouthAustralia
- Moderator – Raymond Spencer, Chair of the Economic Development Board
