Department of State Growth

Workplace values

The Department of State Growth aims to attract, recruit and retain people who will uphold our values and are committed to building a strong values based culture.  Our values are vital to who we are and how we succeed.  They are shared across the department and underpin how we work with each other and our community. Our values and behaviours reflect what we consider to be important, that is

Our people who are at the heart of the organisation; our decisions which are based on sound principles; and our clients who are at the centre of what we do.

We have the Courage to Make a Difference through:

  • Teamwork – our teams are diverse, caring and productive
  • Respect – we are fair, trusting and appreciative
  • Excellence – we take pride in our work and encourage new ideas to deliver public value
  • Integrity – we are ethical and accountable in all we do

Through our values, we promote a positive workplace environment.  We incorporate our values and behaviours into our policies, systems and processes including our recruitment and our induction. We align our values and behaviours with our performance management approach and continually promote the opportunity for people to grow and develop their career and lives in our training and development programs.
