Before the pandemic, the Australian Public Service Commission reported that 22 percent of APS employees were working from home or on flexible working arrangements – that number has now grown substantially to 56 percent. Australians are slowly learning how to work in the context of the pandemic and flexible working arrangements are becoming the norm. But the question is still up for debate: do we have to be in the office, or even the same city as our office and our teams, to work effectively and efficiently?
In this latest episode we are joined by Duncan Young, General Manager of the Census and Data Acquisition Division at the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and Ali Jenkins, First Assistant Secretary, APS Reform Office at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. Listen as they share how they are leading teams in Canberra and beyond, both remotely from Tasmania.
