APS Employee Census

2023 APS Employee Census Results

The APS employee census collects information on important workforce issues, such as job satisfaction, employee engagement, performance management, leadership and general impressions of the APS.

Finance's agency-level highlights report in PDF and accessible Excel format, contains a summary of employee census results across areas such as engagement, wellbeing, leadership, and innovation.

Finance achieved a strong participation rate of 93 per cent. This means we can confidently rely on the results to understand the perspectives of employees across the Department. We have continued to compare well to the broader APS, particularly around the indicators of engagement, innovation and wellbeing. The results reflect that Finance staff are highly committed, capable and engaged.

While our 2023 Census results showed that Finance continued to perform strongly in comparison with the APS overall, analysis of our results over time shows that Finance can continue to improve in the three key areas of communication and change; empowering others; and health and wellbeing. Our 2023 Census Action Plan identifies actions being implemented department-wide to further strengthen our performance and workplace culture.

For more detail about interpreting, benchmarking and comparing the results, we recommend visiting the APSC’s census landing page and reading the explanatory guide for more technical information.
