We envisage a Public Service with leaders who take joint responsibility for big issues, a workforce that’s ready and willing to move where it needs to and organisations that can move and flex with changing times, issues and needs.

What if we could rearrange our Public Services like building blocks? Imagine how quickly and easily we could shift our people and resources to cope with changing times and needs.

With a flexible toolkit of options, we wouldn’t have to stick to the old format of separate departments. By creating new ways to wrap collectively around an issue, we could join forces and make a bigger difference.

By strengthening the constitutional role of the Public Service we could protect and enshrine the most important foundations that make New Zealand’s Public Service one of the best in the world. We want you to be proud of your Public Service.
