'How do we do?': The Socio-Psychological Status of Public Servants

Jocelyn Finniear, Steve Hill, Clare Butler

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    What behaviours do public servants regard as representing publicness? Do those same behaviours allow us to meet the challenges of an increasingly diverse and testing civicness? The authors think not. They argue that the existing psychological contract needs to be examined and collectively redefined, initiating a reinvention in how we behave when we do public service.
