The annual online NSW People Matter Employee Survey opens to all employees across the NSW public sector in June each year.

The survey provides an important opportunity for almost 400,000 employees to have a say about their workplace and to help make the public sector a better place to work.

The survey asks employees about experiences with their own work and working with their team, managers and the organisation. Participants are asked to be thoughtful, honest, and candid when they complete the survey.

The public sector includes a wide range of services relating to health, education, transport, justice, family support, finance, planning and environment, and many other areas. Employees provide services directly to the public or work behind the scenes in research, policy, programs, clerical, corporate, and more.

The survey is coordinated by the Public Service Commission working in collaboration with public sector departments and agencies.
