The NSW People Matter Employee Survey asks employees about their experience and perceptions of a range of workplace issues and practices, including management and leadership, service delivery, employee engagement, diversity and inclusion, public sector values, and unacceptable conduct.

The survey is conducted by the NSW Public Service Commission with assistance from NSW public sector agencies and Big Village, an external service provider.  Big Village is a member of the Association of Market and Social Research Organisations (AMSRO) and adheres to the Privacy (Market and Social Research) Code 2014 (the Code).

The privacy of survey respondents is an important aspect in the design and management of the survey. The survey data is aggregated for reporting and response thresholds are applied to ensure that all survey responses remain anonymous and confidential.

The summary results of the survey help agencies identify elements of good practice and areas in need of further improvement. The survey results also provide evidence to help target strategies to build NSW Public Sector capability.
