CE Kerry Gregory and DCE People Janine Hearn introduce the new Code of Conduct and revised Bullying, harassment and victimisation policy.

Consultation open

We are seeking your feedback on a proposed new Code of Conduct and our updated draft Policy on Bullying, Harassment and Victimisation.

The Eke Taumata Programme is responsible for giving effect to the recommendations from the Public Service Commission/Te Kawa Mataaho review into Fire and Emergency’s workplace culture. One of those recommendations was to develop a single Fire and Emergency Code of Conduct that applies to all Fire and Emergency personnel. Another was to review some of our policies that relate to inappropriate behaviour and conduct, and the actions the organisation takes in response to this.

The Eke Taumata team have developed a draft Fire and Emergency Code of Conduct and an updated draft Bullying, Harassment and Victimisation policy. From Monday 12 February, everyone in Fire and Emergency is invited to provide input and comment on these draft documents. The Code of Conduct will be a key enabler for our culture change journey – supporting us to build an environment for our people where they feel they belong, one that is positive, safe and inclusive.

Building a workplace based on respect and inclusion is an absolute priority for the Board and for the Executive Leadership team.

Have your say

We all have a role to play in changing our culture for the better and your feedback on these proposals is part of this.

Information on the proposed policy changes is on the Eke Taumata portal page.

Consultation closes on Sunday 10 March 2024.
