At 30 June 2016, the ATO employed 20,659 ongoing, non-ongoing and casual staff under the Public Service Act 1999. Of the 17,514 ongoing employees, approximately 1.7% identified as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, an increase from 1.4% in 2014–15.
The ATO has a commitment to continue to build and motivate our workforce to be professional, accountable and responsive. External recruitment is used to refresh our workforce skills, assist cultural change and improve processes.
Continuing with our commitments to government for a more productive and efficient public service, the ATO workforce was reduced by approximately 590. This reduction was realised through a range of workforce management options, including natural attrition, redeployment, vacancy management, more efficient job and work design, as well as one large-scale voluntary redundancy process.
