Government Employee Number
The GEN (Government Employee Number) is a unique identifier for all NSW government employees and was introduced by the NSW Public Service Commission as a key step in thinking about the NSW government sector as one. It is designed to provide employees with secure access to the NSW Identity Hub and help with improving workforce management and analysis to the sector.
Your GEN is a single key to log in to an increasing number of computer applications through the NSW Identity Hub, a whole of government identity and access management system. Your GEN will stay with you even if you transfer between agencies or leave and return to the government sector.
