In the Spotlight

Keeping the Values Alive – A Panel Discussion

On April 3rd, 2014, three great public servants with established front-line experience; France Gratton (Correctional Service Canada), Robert Smith (Employment and Social Development Canada) and Mathieu Gour (Canada Border Services Agency) will join Daniel Watson, the Chief Human Resources Officer at the Canada School of Public Service for a lively Armchair Discussion  / Webinar. Through questions around their personal and front-line experience, the discussion will explore what it takes to embody the values of the public sector in our day-to-day lives, and how regular dialogue around values and respect will help to keep you and your workplace healthy. During this discussion Mr. Watson will introduce some new tools that have been developed by his office to support you in keeping the ethics conversation going within your teams, he will provide tips on how to build and maintain a respectful workplace and how to avoid the pitfalls of ethical failures. Given the key role of Managers and supervisors in setting an ethical tone, whether it be guiding employees through their daily challenges or being a safe and confidential channel for employees to make a disclosure of wrongdoing under the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA), all in our community are strongly encouraged to attend this important event. We invite you to share your experiences at this engaging event, in person or via webinar. To register to attend in person or via Webcast, please click here.
