The People, Metrics, Analytics and Projects (PMAP) Branch within the Public Service Commission (PSC) is responsible for providing information to senior leaders and decision makers to enable evidence and data-based decisions. The branch will use Worker's Safety and Compensation Board (WSCB) data and transform it into illustrative and dynamic models. These models will assist senior management with evidence-based decision making.
The benefit of evidence-based data is that strategic planning and resources can be targeted to address specific workplace and business issues. For example, the analysis of accidents versus lack of training uptake by staff may justify mandatory training. Without metrics, resources may be randomly applied to initiatives that may not address gaps. Evidence-based data therefore facilitates efficient use of resources towards impactful business and workplace solutions.
