'Speak Up' campaign
Speak up and support ethical behaviour in your workplace.
Everyone and anyone across the Tasmanian public sector can help to identify and eradicate misconduct. If you notice anything about individual or corporate behaviour that seems unethical, such as favours for mates, undeclared gifts, conflicts of interest or misuse of resources, don't keep it to yourself – do something about it.
The Integrity Commission is working with agencies to give employees clear and easy-to-find information about what they can do. Look for the Speak up campaign on your agency's intranet or website. You'll find information about how to Speak up and report misconduct. If you can't find it – ask your agency when it will be available.
As public sector employees, we all have a responsibility to contribute to high ethical standards in our workplaces. Be part of the solution and Speak up.
About the campaign
The Commission has developed the campaign in response to our misconduct prevention research and our investigations, to help employees to Speak up about misconduct.
Speak up is being rolled out across State Service agencies, councils, Government Business Enterprises, state owned companies and state authorities from September 2014.
'Speaking up' will become an embedded and continuing part of working life across the state public sector as more agencies adopt the campaign.
