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.
NDIS providers in Queensland will have the opportunity to contribute to relevant and meaningful data by providing key information about their workforce through utilising the online Workforce Wizard tool. Workforce Wizard allows organisations to enter data on their workforces on a regular quarterly basis and benchmark against other similar workforces. Participating organisations will receive benchmark reports on trends such as rates of turnover, ratios in types of employment, and rates of utilisation.
Workforce Wizard now offers State and Territory benchmarks, and for Queensland users it offers the opportunity to enter and track workforce data at a regional level. This regional data will help organisations to obtain a better picture of the workforce as NDIS rolls out across the state.
The data and intelligence generated through Workforce Wizard will form part of an evolving evidence base to guide and inform future planning for the NDIS workforce across Queensland.
Benchmark reports have been identified by organisations as being a great tool for both their workforce planning and reporting to their boards around workforce.
The following reports are created from Workforce Wizard data and are released twice a year.
