2022-23 Annual Report

The Department is pleased to announce that our Annual report 2022—23  is now available. The report provides the Western Australian Parliament and the community with an overview of our performance, as well as budget papers and other strategic documents. It offers transparency, accountability, and compliance with legislative and government policy requirements, focuses on key areas of achievement and describes the functions, operations and performance highlights of the Department over the period.

This reporting period saw a strong growth in the State’s economy and workforce participation. Employment reached record high levels, while unemployment rates fell. In addition; a shortage of skilled labour and industry diversification, border restrictions and staff absenteeism has made it difficult for business and industry to fill vacancies.

Our Annual report 2022–23 highlights the Department's successful response to these workforce challenges.
