In a professional and respectful manner, APS employees should engage in robust policy conversations . Equally, as citizens, APS employees should also embrace the opportunity to add to the mix of opinions contributing to sound, sustainable policies and service delivery approaches . Employees should also consider carefully whether they should identify themselves as either an APS employee or an employee of their agency.
