Public Sector Excellence™

Public Sector Excellence™ is an independent non-profit citizen-centred brand-driven initiative to assess, inspire and celebrate excellence in the public sector. It’s a proactive vehicle to give citizens a voice in public service and to give input to government and its agencies, SOEs and communication partners responsible for delivering social services and communicating with citizens.

“The Public Sector Excellence initiative is an inspirational model for recognising and showcasing excellent agencies and programmes, as well as high performing public servants, which will lead others in moving “from good to great,”
Nancy R. Lee, best-selling author and co-author with Philip Kotler of “Marketing in the Public Sector”, Public Sector Excellence 2009.

“We are in the process of building a performance orientated state which should practically turn our promises into action. Our actions should begin to impact directly on what our people are experiencing on daily basis when they come into contact with government. It is for this reason that we did not hesitate nor doubted our commitment and participation in the Public Sector Excellence awards,”
Hon. Minister Collins Ohm Chabane, Minister of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation, Public Sector Excellence 2010.

The Public Sector Excellence™ initiative comprises research, training and awards to recognize and inspire excellence in the public service through its government departments and its agencies and SOE’s, and a Lifetime Achievement for Distinguished Public Service to recognize retired public servants who have served South Africa for more than 20 years.

The inaugural Public Sector Excellence™ held in 2009, was hosted by the erstwhile Minister of Public Service & Administration, Hon. Minister Masenyani Richard Baloyi and the international best-selling co-author of “Social Marketing – Influencing Behaviours for Good.” Professor Lee hailed the initiative as an inspirational “model for showcasing excellent agencies and programs, as well as high performing public servants, which will lead others in moving ‘from good to great.’”

The second Public Sector Excellence™ in 2010 was hosted by Professor Gerard Hastings (OBE), the international best-selling author of “Social Marketing: Why Should the Devil have all the Best Tunes?”, advisor to the Scottish, UK and European Parliaments and the Minister of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation, Hon. Minister Collins Ohm Chabane, who acknowledged the relevance of the initiative in giving government and independent perspective and evaluation of service delivery.

“The global financial crisis, driven by failings in the private sector, only serves to emphasis the crucial role of the public sector. The Public Sector Excellence initiative is a superb initiative which helps ensure that this vital dimension of any modern society gets accurate performance feedback and so continues to flourish,”
Professor Gerard Hastings, author of “Social Marketing: Why Should the Devil have all the Best Tunes?”, Public Sector Excellence 2010.
