The head of Tasmania's heritage authority is being shifted into a new role.
It comes after allegations of bullying and harassment inside the government body were aired earlier this year.
Heritage Tasmania director Pete Smith will take on a new position within the Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment Department, leading a number of projects for the department and the Tasmanian Heritage Council.
"This includes scoping a study on the value of heritage to our economy and community, which is a strategic priority as we move into COVID-19 recovery," a departmental spokesperson said.
"To facilitate a smooth transition, a senior manager from within the department will take up the director role for the next six months."
The relocation of Mr Smith comes several months after a staff satisfaction survey, conducted by the Community and Public Sector Union, exposed a toxic workplace culture at Heritage Tasmania and a view it had mismanaged the state's heritage register.
When employees were asked to identify what they would like to see changed in their workplace, responses included "a change in toxic leadership", "a new director" and "a manager who focuses less on time, and more on output".
DPIPWE has also confirmed that it intends to move Heritage Tasmania into the department's Land Tasmania division, which it says will "deliver significant benefits to both areas given the strong synergies across functions, systems and processes".
