Further Information:

Many people want to know how the workforce may be changing in the lead up to the full rollout of the NDIS.

  • Are more people being employed as casual rather than permanent workers?
  • Is there a different mix of skills and demographics?
  • What is happening to hours of work, working conditions and training?

At the moment there is no reliable, high quality, up-to-date data that answers these questions.

Workforce Wizard fills this gap and offers you a data exchange. Workforce Wizard allows you to benchmark your data in two ways. After you add your workforce information, you will be able to benchmark your workforce with other providers in the sector who have entered the same information.
