Respectful workplaces don't just happen, they are built through the values we hold and the way we behave towards each other every day.

The Department is committed to safe, inclusive and respectful workplaces, where staff are valued and feel supported to speak up.

The Department's Respectful Workplaces program aims to create lasting behaviour change by increasing staff awareness, understanding, capability and confidence in building and maintaining respectful workplaces.

The program brings together and focuses on the Department's Values and Code of Conduct, diversity and inclusion, equal opportunity, human rights, and workplace bullying.
