Jim LongleyI’m excited to be writing the first post on our new Working Together website. As you know we went live 2 days ago, and already we’ve had almost 300 staff register! That’s a great response and a promising start. I encourage you to chat to your colleagues and encourage them to register too.

In 2015 we’ll be looking at other ways we can engage with you and hear your suggestions, as many of our staff don’t have ready access to emails or computers on a daily basis and are busy out in the field. We will seek your views via staff surveys, talk to you via Yammer and other interactive tools

In the meantime, have a look around the website, chat to your colleagues and tell us what you think of the materials. You can drop us a line at or our Aboriginal staff can email

I’d like to wish all of you and your families a safe and happy Christmas and New Year and thanks for your ongoing dedication and hard work.


Jim Longley
Deputy Secretary
