Achieving the department’s purpose

Our role is to foster a productive and competitive labour market through employment policies and programs that increase workforce participation, and facilitate jobs growth through policies that promote fair, productive, flexible and safe workplaces.

The department achieves its purpose through two key strategic outcomes, each of which has associated strategies, performance measures and indicators. Collectively these elements tell our performance story.

OUTCOME 1:  Foster a productive and competitive labour market through employment policies and programs that help job seekers into work, meet employer needs and increase Australia’s workforce participation.

OUTCOME 2:  Facilitate jobs growth through policies that promote fair, productive and safe workplaces.
