Public service managers have a sworn duty to uphold the core values of the public sector in their decisions, behaviours and work environments.

This timely event features John Hannaford, Clerk of the Privy Council, who will discuss the critical role that public service managers play in upholding our shared code of values and ethics, and in further fostering these at both the individual and team levels.

Participants will gain a better understanding of the importance of values and ethics and how to apply them when dealing with conflicts of interest, ethical dilemmas, and other issues common to managers in the federal workplace.

This event is presented jointly by the Canada School of Public Service, the National Managers’ Community, the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer and the Privy Council Office.
