Workforce Wizard is a simple online tool to help disability organisations track workforce trends. As the National Disability Insurance Scheme rolls out, the workforce is growing and changing shape. Workforce Wizard lets you monitor the changes in your workforce and the sector and make informed decisions about workforce development and planning for the future.
There are only 8 questions. These relate to the number of full-time, part-time, fixed-term and casual workers; total hours of work; entries and exits to your workforce during the quarter; and the age and sex make-up of your workforce.
Each quarter, Workforce Wizard will ask one additional question in an area of need so we can better answer your questions about the make-up of the disability workforce. This could be anything from cultural diversity in the workforce to your views on recruitment difficulty.
No, just on your disability support workforce or your allied health workforce. We are not yet looking into back office staff or higher managerial staff. You define the scope of the workforce you are reporting on.

After data entry closes there is a one week period where the Workforce Wizard team conducts data checking to ensure only quality data is reported. You can access benchmark reports after this data checking period ends.
The data entry period is open for two weeks.
If you have this information on hand in your HR system, it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.
During the data entry period you can easily log back in and correct mistakes. If you realise after the data entry period, please get in touch with our Workforce Wizard team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
