"I am proud of my role and how we get things done."

Michele Paphitis is the Director of Organisation Capability, People and Culture at the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation.

As a senior member of the People and Culture executive, Michele shapes and implements people and culture strategies relating to capabilities, diversity and inclusion, development and leadership, employee experience, strategic workforce management and performance management, planning and cycles.

Michele joined the executive team in the Department early last year and enjoys striving for best contemporary practice.

“I like how I can connect with my colleagues across the public sector through PSC Communities of Practice. I also stay in touch with industry best practice through professional memberships outside the public sector.”

Michele cites her key achievements as the design and delivery of contemporary management and leadership programs, implementation of online performance and development plans where objectives are linked to strategic plans, design and roll-out of tailored culture programs and mapped capabilities with a lot more in the pipeline.

“I love making a difference and seeing how that improves the way we work in the Department. I am proud of my role and how we get things done.”

Outside of work, Michele keeps her energy levels up by playing netball, snorkelling and spending time with family. She’s also an avid traveller and is making her way around Australia and the Pacific Islands.
