The study covered 10 key drivers of attractiveness, including meaningful work, career progression opportunities, job security and work life balance.

“Staff at DCJ live by their values of service, trust, accountability, integrity and respect,” Mr Tidball said.

“Employees in workplaces with values-led cultures are happier and more motivated, leading to better business and client outcomes, and this shines through in the findings of this study,” Ms Carvolth said.
“We are very proud to be recognised as the number one public sector employee in Australia.”
