In a public sector first, a new online community is set to harness the ideas, experiences and expertise of over 140,000 staff across agencies.

The Public Sector Commission’s iThink (WA Public Sector) community is now open to engage staff in developing solutions to current and future challenges in the sector.

“We have people from virtually every profession, every trade and background working across this vast State,” Commissioner Sharyn O’Neill said.

“We want to hear the ideas that spring up between colleagues to improve the public sector for our people and, of course, for the people we serve in Western Australia.”

Through iThink, public sector staff can share ideas, expand on the ideas of others and vote on their favourites, and ultimately watch them grow.

“Our first challenge focuses on diversity so we’re asking staff to think about their workplaces and experiences, and what we could do better together,” Ms O’Neill said.

Responses to the initial challenge will help to shape the sector-wide workforce diversification strategy that the Commission is developing as part of the workforce diversification reform initiative.

The online ideas community also supports the Government’s reform agenda to foster a more collaborative sector and bring innovation and creativity to its work.

iThink is now live so sign on to check it out and get thinking!
