The Australian Government has released its response to the findings of the House Select Committee on Workforce Australia Employment Services.

In the response, the Government agreed reforms are necessary and it will create a responsive employment services system so that the system actively supports meaningful participation and secure and sustainable employment of people, and the workforce needs of employers and industry, based on the principles set out in the Employment White Paper.

This includes building and embedding more active stewardship from the Australian Public Service (APS) in the employment services system, combined with a range of providers and delivery partners, including a greater role for community-based organisations such as social enterprise and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled organisations.

The government also promised to work closely with participants, stakeholders and the broader community to strengthen employment services and provide a service that meets the needs of Australians.
