Public Service Day 2018
Public Service Day is almost here - Wednesday 7 November.
Ever since the Public Service Association (PSA) began its life we have been committed to the value of the public service.
The PSA formed on 31 October 1913, less than a year after the Public Service Act was assented on 7 November 1912.
The initiative being taken by Government to celebrate that historical date as Public Service Day is certainly therefore a milestone worth celebrating.
Appropriately the official theme for Public Service Day 2018 is “spirit of service”.
To support this we are putting a call out for answers to this question:
What does "spirit of service" mean to you in your work in the Public Service?
A copy of this flyer can be downloaded below.
To mark Public Service Day, two awards have been created by the States Services Commission (SSC) - the New Zealand Public Service Medal and the State Services Commissioner’s Commendation for Frontline Excellence.
The Public Service Medal was announced by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in August - see here.
We'll be giving an update on this and award recipients after the ceremony being held at Parliament to present the awards on Monday 5 November.
The SSC have also designed this official logo:
