NSW Premier Mike Baird has publicly committed to making all roles in the NSW
government sector flexible by 2019, asking, ‘If a position can’t be adopted for
flexible work practices, why not?’
The NSW Public Service Commission is seeking
public comment on the concept of flexible working in order to provide formal
advice to the NSW Government.
The Commission has released a Discussion Paper
that sets out a proposed approach to build the sector’s flexible working
capacity in order to realise the Premier’s commitment. Feedback gathered on the discussion paper and its 14 key questions will inform
the draft flexible working strategy being developed by Deloitte for the NSW
government. The draft strategy will focus on evolving the culture of the sector
so employees are valued for their output and able to make choices about where,
when and how they work to deliver outcomes.The flexible working discussion paper can be accessed here.
