Managing sickness absence is the first theme.
The guide examines what sickness absence methods are working well and encourages organisations to look at good practice examples.
The Wales Audit Office has decided to launch The Good Practice Exchange because of its unique position. Its remit crosses public sector bodies in Wales - Unitary Authorities, Welsh Assembly Government, NHS Trusts, Local Health Boards, Police, Fire Probation, National Parks, Assembly Government Sponsored Public Bodies and Community Councils - so it can look at the complete picture.
Auditor general for Wales Jeremy Colman said:
'The Good Practice Exchange is relevant to everybody in the public services and I offers the prospect of really changing behaviour in key areas.'
WAO chief operating officer Anthony Snow said:
'There's no point in reinventing the wheel, which is why this is such a useful tool for all public services. It shares the learning across Wales by showing what is working effectively elsewhere. Why not take good ideas from other organisations and implement them wherever possible? It's an effective, resourceful, and speedier way of improving and connects public services together.'
