Workforce Information

The Workforce Information Report, compiled by the Office of the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment (OCPSE), is the official record of the size and composition of the South Australian Public Sector workforce as at June each year.

To better understand the workforce, the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment collects a comprehensive range of workforce data from all public sector agencies in South Australia under Section 19 of the Public Sector Act 2009.

The report outlines the South Australian Public Sector’s workforce size, structure and composition which reflects changing community needs, government priorities, the economic environment and demographic trends.

The public sector uses this valuable information to plan for demographic changes and ensure the right skills are recruited and retained to deliver services for the South Australian community.

Workforce Information Collection

A broad range of data is collected by the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment as outlined in the Commissioner’s notice to agencies regarding statistical reporting requirements and defined in the Human Resource Dataset: Data Definitions.

Agencies are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all data stored in business systems or reported to the OCPSE to support the compilation of the Workforce Information Report.

The OCPSE is continuing to automate workforce data collection which will enable data to be accessed more readily.
