The NSW Premier’s Priority for attaining a world class public service by 2025 has two pillars:
- implement best practice productivity and digital capability into the NSW public sector
- drive public sector diversity, and diversity of leadership.
By measuring productivity, employee engagement, and workplace inclusion and diversity we can track our significant but ongoing progress towards this ambition.
Productivity is fundamental to every organisation but can sometimes be difficult to measure in the public sector. Nevertheless, the sector has committed to reporting on 24 major productivity-related outcomes, with one additional outcome included in 2022. A summary of the sector’s progress towards these outcomes is shown below.
||Number of outcomes
|Green (on track)
|Amber (minor risks)
|Red (major risks)
Employee engagement is about a person’s connection to their organisation, and is a global measure of employee experience. Employee engagement can also be used as a proxy for productivity.
