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 email@example.com or by calling 1300 720 289.
