Political activities self-assessment tool

Jun 25, 2013

Earlier this year, the Public Service Commission launched a revised Political Activities Self-Assessment Tool. The tool is supposed to allow public service employee to gauge whether or not their political involvement would affect their impartiality.

 This revised tool was launched as a one-year pilot allows users to:

  • Select from a more comprehensive list of political activities including the use of social media;
  • Obtain a printable final report with more detailed results; and
  • Provide anonymous feedback on the tool itself if they so desire.

 I encourage all members to test the tool and judge whether the results are valid.  You work in a highly politicized environment and you’ll want to make sure that the results of the tool fairly represent the risks to your impartiality.

 In Solidarity,
