Digital efficiencies may drive NDIS workforce sustainability
Stakeholders were invited to forums at the Sunshine Coast, Gympie and Chermside to discuss sustainability in the NDIS workforce, and what that may look like as the scheme continues to roll out.
Held during the last week of March 2019 and hosted by WorkAbility Queensland and Boosting the Local Care Workforce program, event attendees talked about staff development, induction and wellness issues, as well as workforce inclusion.
The use of emerging digital technologies was also a hot topic – supporting collaboration, creating efficiencies and potentially enabling workforce models which are sustainable for both the organisation and the employee.
If embedding innovative technology is a priority for your organisation, these additional resources may be helpful:
- Information technology for business: The Queensland Government has developed a suite of guides to improve digital readiness.
- Follow the journeys of Small Business Digital Champions: Fifteen small businesses from a variety of industries have been selected to become digital champions by the Department of Jobs and Small Business. Over the next year they will be featured in online, interactive case studies that will provide real-life insights into the business benefits of adopting digital technology.

WorkAbility Queensland and Boosting the Local Care Workforce are exploring our next steps in moving forward the priority actions from the sustainability conversations. For more information please contact Kylie Hogan at Boosting the Local Care Workforce, or Christine Payne at NDS.
