Part 3 — Our operations

Part 3 contains a report on our operations including our people, audit functions, communications, the Shared Services Centre and environmental performance.

Major achievements

We effectively managed the large and complex machinery-of-government change creating the Department of Employment from the previous Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR). This included transferring programmes and more than 600 employees to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Department of Social Services.

We conducted an effective campaign to promote awareness of the Tasmanian Jobs Programme and prepared for the launch of the Restart wage subsidy and mature-age employment campaign.

The creation of the Shared Services Centre, while managing machinery-of-government and system changes required to establish the partner departments and the centre, was a milestone achievement for all involved.
