NJSS staff attend ethics and integrity workshop

Twenty (20) staff from the National Judicial Staff Services were reminded to maintain their integrity and uphold ethical values in their line of work.

Justice John Carey delivered this message to the participants during a one-day Ethics and Integrity workshop at the PNG Centre for Judicial Excellence training room yesterday.

“Ethical conduct will lead to better decision making and improved court performance as we facilitate access to justice for the people of Papua New Guinea,” Justice Carey said.

He said ethics was about doing right, and that being such should come from the heart.

“We must uphold the ethical values of honesty, integrity and respect in our working environment,” Justice Carey said.

“We must not misuse facilities that belong to the institution.

Justice Carey told the staff to always abide by the rules given and reminded them to always uphold the integrity of the institution they were working for.

Staff discussed and were trained on the following topics:

1. What is ethics and integrity?

2. Why ethics and integrity is important in the workplace; and

3. The components of ethics and integrity.

Secretary to Justice Carey, Ms. Rakana Varage-Manoka said she was privileged to attend such workshop as it was the first and thanked the facilitator for organizing the workshop.

“In my previous employment I had never attended such a workshop on how to develop strong work ethics, and for me to attend this, is such a great privilege, and I know the other participants are also privileged to attend,” she said.

The workshop ended on a high note of role plays and discussions between the participants.
