Behaving Ethically

Employee Surveys

One source of data on the ethical standards of agency practice and employee behaviour is the People Matter Employee Survey. [1]

All clusters and agencies have been provided with their results from the People Matter Employee Survey carried out in 2012. This was the first of its kind in the NSW government sector and allowed employees to report on how well they thought the government sector values are applied within their workplace, agency and across the sector. 

A sector-wide baseline has been created for the NSW government sector as a whole and in following years results will be tracked against this baseline. 

The Public Service Commission will be conducting a People Matter survey every second year.  This will allow a period of time for agencies to develop and implement ethics improvement strategies.
