Workforce information policies

The PSC manages the data collected through the workforce profile in accordance with the published Code of Practice. The Code of Practice is approved by the NSW Attorney General.

Guidance for agencies in relation to the Workforce Profile Collection is published in Government Circular C2010-10.

The Code of Practice and Circular C2010-10 are routinely updated and are currently being reviewed to include the latest additions to the workforce information data.

The workforce profile collection includes the Government Employee Number (GEN), a unique identifier provided to each NSW government sector employee. The GEN enables more advanced analytics while ensuring that the Workforce Information Warehouse does not contain personal information such as employee names. The GEN has its own code of practice which is available on the GEN privacy page.
