Australian Public Service Employee Census

The Australian Public Service (APS) Employee Census (the Census) is an annual survey of all APS employees and collects information on workforce issues including employee engagement, leadership, performance and general impressions of the workplace and APS.

The SWA 2023 Census highlight report is now available. This year, SWA had an agency response rate of 97 per cent with an increase in positive response rates across the majority of questions asked. SWA gains insights from the census results and is committed to taking action to embed in our working environment. After analysis of our 2023 Census results, SWA has developed three Agency wide key priorities for the next 12 months. The three key priorities make up the 2023 SWA action plan and will be tracked with a mid-year review.
