A code of conduct is one of the many things we just ‘have to have’ in the public sector. But are our codes of conduct just another compliance ‘tick’?  Can a code of conduct deliver real value to employees, managers and organisations?

This webinar, offered free of charge, will help ‘blow the dust’ off your existing code of conduct, or get you well underway if you’re creating a new code.

Representatives from Tasmanian public sector organisations attended a whistleblowing presentation last week, led by Professor AJ Brown from Griffith University. As the leader of the largest current research project into whistleblowing, Professor Brown outlined jurisdictional approaches to whistleblowing, and common difficulties faced by public sector organisations. Professor Brown also discussed the ‘Whistling While They Work 2’ research project, which will examine managerial responses to whistleblowing and their effects within organisations.

The Commission launches ‘Thanks is enough’

The Integrity Commission has released the ‘Thanks is enough’ awareness campaign to help public authorities manage the ethical risks that emerge when gifts and benefits are offered to public sector employees. The campaign’s core message is that simple expressions of appreciation from the public and businesses are welcomed, but if that expression involves a gift then it presents risks to the employee and the public authority involved. Therefore ‘thanks is enough’.

The Commission is providing all public authorities (free of charge) with a package of awareness tools to help spread this message. These are customised for each public authority and can be distributed with minimal effort.

Public authorities can easily get on-board with the campaign by contacting mper@integrity.tas.gov.au or by calling 1300 720 289.
