Appendix H : Additional human resource (HR) statistics

This appendix addresses the requirement for us to publish a range of HR statistics. It includes:

  • a profile of our workforce by classification and location
  • a profile of our workforce by gender, tenure and hours of work
  • the salary scales available by classification, and
  • details of the extra salary payments made to non-SES staff on AWAs in 2003-04.

These statistics include non-ongoing staff but exclude inoperative and casual staff unless noted otherwise.
