The PSC manages the data collected through the workforce profile in accordance with the published Privacy Code of Practice for the Public Service Commission and the Health Privacy Code of Practice for the Public Service Commission. The codes are approved by the NSW Attorney General and NSW Minister for Health, respectively.
Guidance for agencies in relation to the Workforce Profile Collection is published in Government Circular C2010-10.
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. For more information about the GEN see the GEN privacy page.
