Five public sector teams from around Australia were honoured for projects exemplifying commitment, innovation and stakeholder engagement at the industry’s glamour awards night.
The Victorian Department of Human Services has taken home the coveted top gong at the 2014 Australian Awards for Excellence in Public Sector Management in Canberra on Thursday night.
Public sector leaders gathered at the National Press Club where Employment and Public Service Minister Eric Abetz presented awards to five agencies for team projects demonstrating success and excellent management. The awards, hosted by IPAA’s ACT chapter, aims to encourage and recognise better practice and innovation in all levels of government in Australia and are designed to honour the achievements of public sector work groups, units and teams rather than individuals.
Terry Moran, national president of the Institute of Public Administration of Australia and editorial advisory board member of The Mandarin, said: “It is gratifying that Commonwealth, state and territory public sector organisations around Australia recognise the significance of these awards and are nominating areas of excellence, innovation and collaboration.”
Victoria’s Human Service won the gold award for its Services Connect initiative, using a streamlining model to tailor services to the unique needs, goals and aspirations of each client and their family, with an emphasis on building their strengths and capabilities to move out of disadvantage.
