The year in public service — and Merry Christmas from us

By The Mandarin

December 23, 2015

Departmental shake-ups, inter-agency squabbles and PR disasters: that’s what you most read on The Mandarin this year.

But you also had time for more positive stories: policy analysis, thoughtful commentary, professional development and in-depth case studies on the programs really working across Australia. That’s the mix we’ve endeavoured to deliver each day, on your computer, your mobile device and via The Juice newsletter.

More than a year ago we launched The Mandarin, a publication dedicated to public administration professionals. We’ve built a unique community of leaders in this important space, offering news, commentary and learnings on government in Australia. That community is growing every day.

We hope you’ve enjoyed it. Your engagement — through reading, sharing, commenting and contributing — is always appreciated.

We’re taking a break for the festive season. But watch for more content from January 4, and we’ll be back in your inboxes on January 11. Stay safe.
