Management of human resources

The People Strategies section has primary responsibility for the agency’s people management and organisational capabilities functions. The section supports the agency in delivering on its strategic objectives and helps to foster a positive, productive and engaged workplace. The People Strategies section also provides advice on and delivers organisational strategies, workforce planning, employee relations, performance management, recruitment, and learning and development.

To deliver on the strategies and activities in the agency’s corporate and operational plans, the People Strategies section supports Safe Work Australia in undertaking broad recruitment activities to fill future vacancies in the agency’s policy areas over the forward period. From entry-level development programs to Director-level recruitment, these broad recruitment activities enable the agency to identify the right people with the right skills, and engage them in the right jobs at the right time. Specialised recruitment is undertaken for critical positions or where there is an identified need.
