​Australian Public Service employee census 2022

​​​The APS Employee Census is an annual survey conducted since 2012. It is used to collect confidential attitude and opinion information from APS employees on important issues in the workplace such as leadership, communication and change, workplace conditions, inclusion and innovation.

All APS employees are encouraged to complete the Census – it is an opportunity for them to tell the Australian Public Service Commissioner and respective agency Senior Executive Service (SES) their views about working in the APS.

In continuing our commitment to open and transparent reporting we have released FSANZ's Census outcomes.
