Report calls for a ‘humanized’ public service

The joint union-management task force — struck by former Treasury Board president Tony Clement and the Public Service Alliance of Canada — made 11 recommendations that lay the groundwork to create a culture that enshrines “psychological health, safety and well-being” across the federal workplace.

The report, which recommends implementing the Mental Health Commission’s national psychological standard across government, concludes that the way the public service is managed must shift from an “output-focused environment to one that is more people-focused.”

The recommendations revolve around fixes in key areas: leadership, engagement, education on mental health, training and workplace practices, communication, and promotion and accountability.
