Public sector census pilot asks the right questions

A pilot of a project that will deliver the public sector’s biggest ever collection of workforce information went live today.

Staff from 17 entities are testing the methodology, systems and processes of a census of the entire WA public sector.

The census is designed to deliver a user friendly digital survey experience and takes just 11 minutes to complete.

Data collected from the pilot will be used to improve the census for a sectorwide rollout.

The census project aims to provide greater insight into the size, shape, composition, integrity, diversity, capability and leadership of the sector – and will help us better understand our people and highlight important areas for public sector development.

The entities participating in the pilot are: 

  • Central Regional TAFE
  • Department of Finance
  • Department of Justice
  • Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries
  • Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety
  • Department of the Premier and Cabinet
  • Department of Treasury
  • Insurance Commission of Western Australia
  • Main Roads Western Australia
  • North Metropolitan TAFE
  • Public Sector Commission
  • Public Transport Authority
  • South Metropolitan TAFE
  • South Regional TAFE
  • Western Australia Country Health Services (Geraldton)
  • Western Australia Police Force
  • WorkCover Western Australia.

Data from the pilot will be provided to the leaders of participating entities.

More information for participating staff is online.
