Misconduct Prevention: a manager's workshop

Public Sector Commission

Event outline

A good misconduct prevention and education strategy provides a cohesive set of actions to assist Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) to consider what they can be doing to prevent misconduct. CEOs and their managers are best placed to consider integrity risk areas relative to their functions and workforce, and to decide what initiatives may best assist them to reduce misconduct risks.

Managers, or people with staff reporting responsibilities, are key to building work practices and workplaces that are resistant to misconduct.

Prevention is by far preferable to responding to misconduct. The role of a manager is fundamental in ensuring a public authority has the governance systems, culture and capability in place to prevent misconduct. When all these areas are in place the potential for good decision making is enhanced and the potential for misconduct to occur is reduced.

Based on case studies, participants will come to understand:

  • some of the precursors to unethical decision making and areas of high risk for misconduct 
  • how misconduct risks can be addressed, at an individual and public authority level, by applying an effective governance framework
  • learn how to guide and assist employees to make accountable and ethical decisions.

Audience Group: This FREE session is for governance practitioners, managers with staffing responsibilities and employees responsible for misconduct prevention in their public sector agency,  local government  and  public university.

Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Advisory Line on 6552 8888.
