With an Engagement Index score of 65% for 2014,
engagement levels among NSW public sector employees
compare well to other government jurisdictions in Australia.
They have also risen 4% since 2012. Job satisfaction has a
much higher overall rating of 78%, although the rate varies
between different groups of employees.
However, more needs to be done in individual workplaces by
using the results of the People Matter survey to understand
what drives engagement in work teams and organisations
most effectively, and which drivers have the most impact
on job satisfaction, discretionary effort, delivering results, innovation and productivity.
