Valuing excellence in the NT Public Sector

21 Nov 2014

Close to 600 people turned out for the Chief Ministerís Awards for Excellence in the Public Sector at the Darwin Convention Centre on Friday 14 November.

The awards were an opportunity to recognise the innovative and important work being done across government to fast-track land release, diversify our economy, develop Northern Australia, create jobs in our regions, re-engage with Asia, protect our environment and enhance our great Territory lifestyle.

Winners shared in a $100 000 prize-pool donated by the private sector for use on professional development.

The Chief Minister also took the opportunity to announce a package of measures designed to make the Northern Territory Public Sector a more attractive place to work.

The changes included, among other things, the provision of more flexible working hours, the ability for non-essential staff to accrue leave to use over a new Christmas shutdown period, and the simplification of the recruitment process to make it easier to apply for government jobs.
