NSW is leading the way in the age of inclusion

Building a workplace for people with disability 

The NSW Government is committed to building an inclusive and safe workplace for people with disability. As Australia’s largest employer, with approximately 400,000 employees, we need a workforce that has a diverse mix of skills and talent that is reflective of our population. 

We are in the age of inclusion, and you all play an important role in shaping the culture of your team and your workplace. 

People with disability are particularly underrepresented in the NSW public sector workforce and have the potential to add valuable skills and perspectives to our sector. There is a job out there for everyone, and people with a disability can often have the ideal skill set to excel in a role. 

We at the Public Service Commission have a target to increase the roles held by people with disability in the public sector to 5.6% by 2025. We are doing this by:

  • Attracting and increasing retention of people with disability through inclusive recruitment and timely workplace adjustments
  • Creating a culture of inclusion across the NSW public sector workforce
  • Increasing the participation of employees with disability by providing accessible workplace environments.
