In 2011, the Victorian Public Sector Commission undertook research on the workforce planning risks and challenges across the Victorian public sector. The research report examined the operating environment and analysed available workforce data.
Around 240 senior managers and HR leaders throughout the sector provided valuable information on the issues and actions taken by their organisations to address workforce risks.
Based on the findings, this report makes informed recommendations on better workforce planning practice. Nine case studies supplement the report to illustrate practical solutions to current workforce challenges.
