Making sure we have a talented mix of people across all life stages and ages is important to us and helps provide us with a diverse range of perspectives. Through this we’re able to draw on rich life experiences, skills and innovative ideas, as well as challenge the status quo.
How we’re doing
The NSW public sector workforce has a wide range of age groups represented in our workforce. Understanding the age profile of our workforce is an important element of effective workforce planning and leveraging the diversity this brings. Compared to the broader NSW workforce, the NSW public sector has an older workforce with more employees aged 35 years and over, and fewer employees younger than 34 years.
The range and breadth of employees brings with it an opportunity to gain many different cross-generational perspectives. That’s why we’ve implemented various initiatives to target our dual objectives of retaining our older and experienced employees whilst attracting younger workers to the sector.
