Whole of Sector Reporting

The Public Service Commission provides a regular and clear assessment of how the NSW government sector is progressing on a range of workforce issues.

The State of the NSW Public Sector Report gives an overview at the macro level of the values, capabilities and productivity of the NSW government sector workforce. [1] It also identifies selected workforce-related actions that are either planned or undertaken to improve the performance of the NSW government sector.

The Report is produced annually to provide an evidence-based picture of factors that affect how work is organised and executed by the NSW government sector.

The Report contains original research to describe ethical issues, work experiences and labour force characteristics as they relate to approximately 400,000-strong workforce that makes up the NSW government sector. These data are also used to establish baseline measures that will be used in future State of the NSW Public Sector reports to track changes in the sector over time.

The Report provides a regular and clear assessment of how the sector is progressing in improving its performance with a particular focus on the Ethical Framework core values.

The Report draws on a range of data sources including the sector wide workforce profile data collection, the biennial People Matter survey, and a range of other Public Service Commission research and projects.
