What we stand for

Respect, integrity, accountability and excellence are the core values of the PSC.

Respect, integrity, accountability and excellence are the core values that guide how we work with our clients and with each other. The PSC conducted research, jurisdictional scans, employee focus groups and analyzed comments from the 2015 Employee Survey to confirm these core values.  A background report may be found at this link http://iis.peigov/dept/psc/index.html

“As employees of the civil service we work hard every day to contribute to a better quality of life for all residents of PEI.  Clearly stating how we want to engage with the public and other civil service employees can clarify expectations on how we do our work,” said PSC Board Chair, Carl Lafford.

Here is what these values mean for civil service employees.

Respect – The attitude of acceptance and inclusion.
As an employee of the Prince Edward Island Civil Service I respect the citizens of my province and my Civil Service colleagues. I show respect for others in how I do my work every day by being considerate and inclusive.

Integrity - The quality of being non-partisan, honest, open and fair.
As an employee of the Prince Edward Island Civil Service I am committed to doing my work in a non- partisan, honest, open and fair way.

Accountability - The practice of being responsible, transparent, and willing to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions.

As an employee of the Prince Edward Island Civil Service, I am responsible for my decisions and the quality of my work every day. I am able and willing to explain my work decisions, behaviour and performance.
Excellence - The desire to provide high levels of accuracy, proficiency and knowledge in performing our work and in delivering services to the public.

As an employee of the Prince Edward Island Civil Service I am committed to using my knowledge and experience to provide high quality service and products to the citizens of our province as well as my colleagues within the public service.

“With these core values clearly defined we will continue to fulfill our responsibilities as dedicated and committed civil service employees” Carl Lafford, PSC Board Chair.
