Gordon Campbell and I strongly believe that excellence in the public
service plays a vital role in the life of our province. Directly
or indirectly, the people who work for the provincial government
touch the lives of every British Columbian. Professional, dedicated
public servants contribute, fundamentally, to the well being of
the people of this province.
Our citizens depend on an innovative and responsive public service
to help them succeed in their personal, academic and business lives.
A dynamic and productive public service is crucial to our province's
success on the national and international stages.
The strength of our public service depends on employees who are
motivated and supported to reach their highest potential. In April
2003, the BC Public Service Agency and the BC Leadership Centre
were established to achieve that objective.
This document outlines the strategies the BC Public Service Agency
will implement to bring public service renewal to life. As the Minister
responsible, I believe this plan will help to create a public service
that exemplifies the highest standard of excellence.
Honourable Joyce Murray
Minister of Management Services
