In the past year the State Services Commission has renewed its commitment to leading the Public sector in the service of our nation. We lead. We serve.
To make this happen, we've changed the way we do things to be more effective.
The Deputy State Services Commissioner as Chief Executive is now responsible for running the business, driving results and getting the best from our people.
This allows me, as Head of State Services, to strengthen my focus on the wider Public Service, providing a clear, single point of leadership for all public servants.
This strengthened leadership and governance is underpinned by a significant internal transformation; with a new operating model that is designed to drive active leadership.
We have reorganised into strategic priority areas that include Strategy and Policy, Integrity, Ethics and Standards, System and Agency Performance, Workforce and Talent Management, and our Corporate Services.
To respond to changing needs, senior leaders also report to me on priority work. Currently, these are Auckland issues and System Reform.
Finally, our physical environment is changing to support an agile and collaborative workforce that models best practice.
The Commission is backed by years of policy strength as it steps up to this new challenge of active leadership of the Public sector.
That background positions us well to forge ahead with strength and clarity of purpose.
We are taking a position when required, we're backing public servants and we're protecting the integrity of the Public Service.
Most importantly we're refocusing the system to deliver the services New Zealanders want, need and expect.
The State Services Commissioner is leading the chief executives of New Zealand's Public Service in a major programme of work to drive that transformation successfully.
This is how we lead the Public Service.
At the heart of everything we do is our vision to create a trusted, leading-edge Public Service that makes a difference for New Zealand and New Zealanders.
