Welcome to the People Matter Survey 2017

The People Matter Survey is a public sector employee opinion survey.

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

Additional modules are offered for organisations that wish to seek more in-depth information on a range of workforce topics.

The survey plays a crucial role in supporting public sector organisations to build positive workplace cultures, assisting them in becoming model employers reflecting the diversity of the Victorian community.

Information for Heads of Organisations and HR Directors
