Agency priorities and activities

The FWO’s Strategic Intent and Corporate Plan set out our vision and the five strategic priorities which frame our work and activities. To make a positive difference for the Australian community, we:

  • provide practical workplace relations advice that’s easy to access, understand and apply
  • encourage and empower employees and employers to resolve issues in their workplace
  • build a culture of compliance with workplace laws
  • work with stakeholders to find solutions to workplace issues and opportunities to collaborate
  • focus on being a high-performing, capable and responsive agency that delivers exceptional customer service and manages risk well.

We deliver a range of services to achieve our vision and support compliant, productive and inclusive Australian workplaces. This involves providing advice, assistance and, where appropriate, enforcing workplace laws.

Further details about our priorities and strategies are included in the FWO Corporate Plan, the FWO Strategic Intent and the FWO Compliance and Enforcement Policy, available on the FWO website.
