The NSW Public Sector is committed to the delivery of quality services for the community and therefore needs a diverse, skilled and motivated workforce.
Employers are adopting more innovative and flexible ways of working in order to meet business objectives, to maintain productivity and to attract and retain skilled staff. Employees need greater flexibility to balance career, education and life roles and to extend their work life. Rapid advances in the application of new technologies and telecommunications help employers to structure work arrangements more flexibly.
As the largest employer in the state, the NSW public sector has a lot to offer employees: interesting and challenging work opportunities, the chance to make a real contribution to the community, professional development and career mobility across a range of occupations and industries. However, these benefits alone are not sufficient and to be a competitive employer, agencies need to implement flexible ways of working.
This website guides managers and staff on establishing flexible work arrangements which best suit the needs of the business and individuals.
