Start the conversation

The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources has published a new ‘People Strategy 2020-2022’ setting out its plans for developing a highly performing, diverse and skilled workforce that accepts a future that includes changes.

“Our People Strategy outlines how we are building a high performance organisation by investing in our people, culture and values,” the Department said in a statement.

“It also shows how we seek to live our values of collaboration, innovation, respect and excellence every day.”

It said its strategy and culture were built on three pillars:

* An engaged and inclusive workforce – “A culture that is inclusive, builds capability and cares for our workforce”;

* Future ways of working – “A culture that acknowledges recent and significant changes to the way people work, encourages flexibility and harnesses technology”; and

* Diverse and high performing workforce – “A culture that focusses on building and maintaining a high performing workforce that will be highly skilled, diverse in thought and mobile”.

The Department said its Strategy detailed the outcomes and actions it intends to deliver in each area to support its workforce over the next two years.

“The nature of our business means we are already strong collaborators working in an inclusive environment,” it said.

“Building on this foundation, we can continue to add public value and make positive contributions to the lives and communities of Australians.”
