The future of work in government

The Challenge

The work of government, and the way government works, are changing. And changing fast.

Powerful social, cultural and technological forces are challenging the way government engages an increasingly complex, unpredictable and volatile world.

New thinking is constantly creating better ways for people of all abilities and means to learn, experience, connect and act. But “new” doesn’t always mean “right”, “fair” or “reliable”: issues of trust have never been more central not just to the work government does, but the way that work is done.

And while still expected to provide outstanding services, good policy and effective regulation, people expect government to embrace new tools, timings and techniques. And that is an expectation not without contest or controversy, both within the sector and the communities we serve.

All of which presents some big questions for the public service:

  • How can we adapt our work not just to survive but positively thrive on these challenges, while staying true to the core ideals of public work as open, ethical, fair, focused on the common or public interest and rigorous?
  • How do these challenges impact our ideas about the profession of public administration and, even more basically, the way we define the role and purpose of government itself?
  • How is the “future of work” discussion playing out in the public sector? What does it mean for talent attraction and retention? For development of healthy cultures and leadership? For its very structure and form?
  • Where are we in the digital transformation of government, and how does that respond to these new notions of working in and across government?

Mindhive is joinng the BiiG 2018 Conference and will tackle these questions and more, pulling together ideas and insights from around Australia and across the world about how our people, our systems and our public institutions might work better to best serve the people and communities of Queensland. 

We're interested in the insights of our Mindhive community on these questions so as we can shape our messenging and advice on our collective behalf.
