Message from the Chief Executive Officer
The Employee Code of Conduct for the Sunshine Coast Council is a best practice
guide to help council operate to the highest standards in the public sector and
business environments.
It is also a public statement by council of our commitment to leading the way in all
that we do, supported by openness, transparency and accountability. This document
has been created in consultation with the relevant unions through the Sunshine Coast
Council Workplace Consultative Forum and in cooperation with the Local Government
Association of Queensland.
Conducting business ethically is critical to not only personal success but also to the
success and reputation of council. As local government employees we must ensure that
the highest standards of integrity underpin everything we do. This Code of Conduct
states and reinforces the principles by which council conducts itself in business and
governance. While council’s business practices may change over time, its commitment
to these principles will remain constant.
The guiding principles encompass a vast range of behaviours and procedures but can
be categorised under the headings of:
• Integrity and impartiality
• Promoting the public good
• Commitment to the system of government
• Accountability and transparency
It is important for all council employees to maintain the reputation and high standing of
council, and our ability to achieve a culture of ethical practice, openness and integrity.

Chief Executive Officer
