70 NORTHERN TERRITORY PUBLIC SECTOR PEOPLE MATTER SURVEY REPORT 2014 0 8 | A P P E N D IX 2 The People Matter Survey helps identify the extent to which the Northern Territory Public Sector Values and Principles (as established under the Code of Conduct and the Public Sector Employment and Management Act 2012) are being applied within the Northern Territory Public Service. PUBLIC SECTOR VALUES Commitment to Service The NTPS is professional, hardworking, effective, innovative and efficient, working collaboratively to achieve the best results for the Northern Territory. Ethical Practice The NTPS upholds the highest standards of practice and acts with integrity in all that it does. Respect The NTPS respects all people, and in particular their rights as individuals. Accountability The NTPS is transparent and accountable in all its actions. Impartiality The NTPS is apolitical and provides the Government with advice that is objective, timely and based on the best available evidence. Diversity The NTPS values the diversity of its workforce as well as the Northern Territory population it serves. It is recognised that Accountability is not comprehensively measured in the current survey instrument. It is intended that future surveys will introduce additional questions to remedy this issue. PUBLIC SECTOR PRINCIPLES The administration management principle - Fair, efficient and effective service to the community and government; The human resource management principle - promoting working environments where employees are treated fairly, including the following: - merit choosing people for the right reasons - equality of employment - providing a fair go for all - performance and conduct - managing our behaviours in a professional manner while also being mindful of our impact on colleagues, Government and the community at large. 08 | APPENDIX 2 NTPS VALUES AND PSEMA EMPLOYMENT PRINCIPLES The NTPS Values establish clear expectations around attitudes and behaviours in the workplace. Including how our employees are treated and how they, in turn, treat others.
