WA creates online induction for public sector

The WA Government has created an online induction into the state’s public sector to replace the face-to-face seminars previously run by the Public Sector Commission.

The 30-minute self-paced online induction provides an extensive overview of the important work of the sector and the critical role public officers play in serving the people of Western Australia.

It is designed to complement agency-specific onboarding material and activities, and covers general information about the sector’s structure and role, as well as expectations on staff in terms of integrity and other key issues.

The WA Government is the state’s largest employer with around 140,000 employees working on programs, projects, initiatives and services across government.

According to the Public Sector Commission, the induction “takes a broad look at what constitutes the public sector, what it means to be a sector employee, what is expected of [workers] in [their] service to the community and where [workers] fit in”.
