The largest proportion of the Public Service workforce (43.8%) is located in the Wellington region which comprises both regional and head office-based staff. Other regions have 56.2% of the workforce, led by Auckland (20.3%), Canterbury (9.2%) and Waikato (7.6%). The share of the workforce in Wellington has been increasing in recent years (41.1% in 2015; 41.9% in 2016 and 2017; 42.7% in 2018). A driver for this is increasing work around designing and supporting digital services.
