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 within 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 Health services are mandated to participate in the survey annually by the Department of Health and Human Services.
The VPSC conducted a review of People Matter Survey in 2018. Based on extensive stakeholder consultation, improvements are occurring across the 2019 and 2020 survey cycles.
Participation in the survey is voluntary. But remember, the PMS gives you a voice to provide feedback to build a better public sector.
