Public Sector

Global resource, local impact We are committed to improving public outcomes through a focus on people

The New Zealand public sector has changed significantly in the past decade, revamping, down-sizing and overhauling itself in order to operate more efficiently and effectively. One challenge has remained constant – the need to deliver results within tight financial constraints.

The New Zealand Public Sector continues to deliver services within tight financial constraints, whilst facing increasing expectations for better public services from both citizens and the government.

Top priorities for the public sector are reducing costs and increasing efficiency; doing more with less. 

In some cases savings and efficiencies are achieved through incremental changes in the way work is performed.  In other cases a more fundamental assessment of how an organisation or industry is operating is required to achieve long term financial sustainability and effectiveness.
