The NSW People Matter Employee Survey is open to all NSW public sector employees for four weeks each year.

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

The survey asks employees about their experiences with their work, workgroup, managers, and organisation.

The Public Service Commission coordinates the survey in collaboration with all public sector departments and agencies to run it each year.
