The People Matter Survey is a public sector employee opinion survey run by the Victorian Public Sector Commission.

The survey gives our people the opportunity to express their views on how our shared public sector values and employment principles are demonstrated in their organisation by colleagues, managers and senior leaders. The survey also measures the level of staff engagement and job satisfaction.

PMS results play a crucial role in VPSC’s work supporting public sector organisations. It forms the evidence base for our strategies promoting integrity across the sector, and our initiatives for building positive workplace cultures and assisting organisations in becoming model employers who reflect the diversity of the Victorian community.

All Healthservices, Victorian Public Service departments, Victoria Police and VPSC are mandated to participate annually.

Participation in the survey is voluntary. But remember, the PMS gives you a voice to provide feedback to build a better organisation.
