Workforce Wizard Quarterly Data Entry Period Now Open
Are you wondering what the NDIS will mean for your workforce?
With the transition to the NDIS and the introduction of new models of service delivery, there will likely be substantial changes to the workforce in the disability sector. From experience in trial sites workforce issues are one of the biggest challenges for organisations transitioning to the NDIS. In Queensland, it is expected that between 15,900 and 19,400 additional jobs will be created as a result of the NDIS rollout across the state.
Workforce Wizard is a simple online tool for disability organisations to track changes and trends in disability sector workforces. Workforce Wizard allows organisations to enter data on their workforces on a regular quarterly basis and benchmark against other similar workforces.
Organisations that participate in Workforce Wizard have access to their organisation’s key workforce metrics benchmarked against what is now the largest employment dataset in the disability sector.
Workforce Wizard now also offers State and Territory benchmarks, and in Queensland it offers the opportunity to enter and track workforce data at a regional level.
Over 160 organisations have already signed up and are using Workforce Wizard, with data in the tool representing over 34,000 disability sector workers.
The data entry period for July – September 2016 is now open and closes on 28 October 2016.
