  • 3.2 Management of human resources

    In managing our human resources (HR), our obligations are primarily set out in the Public Service Act 1999 (PS Act) and the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act).

    Along with meeting our legislative obligations, we need to understand size of the workforce, accommodation requirements, skill sets, work distribution, working patterns and aspects of employee retention. Understanding the diversity of our workforce and what keeps our employees engaged supports future workforce initiatives. At the same time, monitoring our health and safety statistics is vital in identifying emerging concerns to allow for early intervention.
