Guided by values

Stronger Together
Working as a team, we are stronger through the connections we have. They are based on respect and trust. By collaborating to solve problems we create shared value and success.
Amplify Impact
Purpose and passion are at
our core. We value what we know and invest in that every day. Client focus is central and we are proud of the work we do. 
Build Trusted Relationships
Our relationships are open, frank and fearless. Trust comes from our care and taking time to understand. Our focus is on how we work as well as what we do.
Value Every Person
Respect is the foundation of how we work with each other. We encourage debate and diversity of views. We are different but equal.
Think Beyond Limits
We embrace a spirit of creativity and are curious in how we explore new ideas. We challenge how we have ‘always done things’. Learning is key to this, both from experience and in staying ahead of the issues facing our clients.
Defined by Ethics
Honesty, integrity and ethical behaviour are non-negotiables. We do what is right, not what is easy. Our clients and teams are clear on where the boundaries are.

What we stand for

Our governance structure is purpose built to address the vision of the business, its values and the needs of regulators and clients. We have specific committees including a Probity, Conflict and Ethics Committee, whose role is to address conflict issues.

All committees report into the Board, which has an independent Chair and two other independent non-executive directors, amongst the six members of the Board.
Code of Conduct
Scyne Advisory team members are bound by a Code of Conduct that is aligned to the Australian Public Service (APS) Code of Conduct, both of which include requirements to behave honestly and with integrity, as well as to treat information in the strictest confidence.

Support Public Sector Skills & Capability Uplift
We build public sector skills and capability during our projects, ensuring we leave behind completed projects with a legacy of success that agencies have the skillset to build on.
Trust & Transparency
We aim to build trust and transparency with our clients through a clear methodology and agreed milestones. We welcome client feedback and use this to actively build on our service offerings. 

Scyne Advisory is committed to full and frank disclosure to its clients and transparency to government. This includes disclosing any material conflicts of interest to our clients, so they are informed about, and jointly involved in, decisions relating to the appropriate management of conflicts.
Speak Up Policy
Our Speak Up Policy ensures that team members have the ability to report any potential cases of wrongdoing, or other concerns, in a safe and secure manner where confidentiality is ensured. Where ethical concerns are substantiated, we will publicly disclose details around these concerns alongside Scyne Advisory's response measures.

Scyne Advisory encourages employees to speak up, helping to create a culture and workplace where everyone feels safe to ask questions or raise concerns and is confident that issues will be handled in a sensitive and considerate way.
