The Tasmanian State Service is committed to building inclusive workplaces and having a workforce that reflects the diversity of the Tasmanian community. This commitment is informed by the following principles:
The State Service Diversity and Inclusion Policy (the Policy) outlines the State Service’s commitment to supporting workforce diversity and inclusion. The Policy is supported by the Diversity and Inclusion Framework 2017 – 2020 (the Framework), which sets out the initiatives that the State Service will champion between 2017 and 2020 to ensure that State Service workforce management practices and policies support people who work, or want to work, in the State Service.
The Policy and the Framework are informed by the following definitions of workforce diversity and inclusion:
Workforce diversity is about recognising and respecting individual differences - including ethnicity, gender, age, race, religion, caring responsibility, disability, or sexual orientation, as well as characteristics such as people’s career path, life experiences, education, where they live, and their appearance. It is also about valuing how these differences can have a positive influence on problem solving, team dynamics and decision making within organisations.
Inclusive organisations focus on ensuring that the culture, values and behaviours of the organisation enable everyone to be respected in the workplace and to have equal access to opportunities and resources.
All State Service agencies are required by the Employer** to endorse and support the Policy and the Framework.
State Service agencies are required to provide work environments that are free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, and which promote equal opportunity for all employees. In addition, the State Service legislative framework, including the State Service Act, includes requirements relating to workforce diversity and building inclusive workplaces.
This document should be read alongside the Framework and the associated toolkits.
* Please note that these principles are informed by, and aim to support, the State Service Principles, section 7 of the State Service Act 2000. More information is provided about these principles in the Framework.
** As outlined in the State Service Act 2000. The Premier currently acts as the Minister administering the State Service Act 2000, and is ‘the Employer’ of all employees and officers employed under this legislation. The Head of the State service (HOSS) has been delegated the Employer functions by the Minister.
