Integrity in the APS | Podcast Series

Integrity can be defined in many ways. It's about accountability, honesty, and doing the right thing. It’s a learnable skill demonstrated through words, deeds, and behaviours. It's also core to building a high-performing, professional public service that delivers quality outcomes for all Australians.

The Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) and IPAA ACT have produced a four-part Integrity in the APS podcast series. It explores the meaning of integrity and the pro-integrity culture and framework that the Australian Public Service (APS) has built to engender trust, professionalism and accountability across the service.

Series host, Rina Bruinsma, First Assistant Commissioner at the APSC, leads the discussions with an exceptional line-up of guests to explore integrity in the APS from four very different, yet interwoven perspectives.

Understanding Integrity explores the concepts of personal and institutional integrity, the APS pro-integrity culture, and discuss how the APS integrity framework supports employees to identify and manage risks and make the right decision, irrespective of level and agency.

EPISODE 2 | EXTERNAL PERSPECTIVES
