2022 APS Employee Census results 

AFSA participated in the 2022 APS Employee Census, coordinated by the Australian Public Service (APS) and achieved a response rate of 78%. This positive participation rate provides a highly reliable dataset that informs enhancements to current programs, as well as the design and delivery of innovative employee centred initiatives.

For AFSA, participation in the APS Census provides an assessment of the Agency’s performance across a number of critical indicators: employee engagement, wellbeing, innovation, leadership, inclusion, communication and change.

The 2022 results have highlighted that AFSA staff:

  • understand how their role contributes to achieving outcomes for the Australian public,
  • are happy to go the ‘extra mile' at work when required,
  • are provided with opportunities to utilise their skills and,
  • supervisors care about each other’s health and wellbeing.

AFSA continues to utilise staff feedback to make AFSA a great place to work and an employer of choice. The census results will continue to shape AFSA’s workforce strategies and initiatives including wellbeing, talent development, culture, innovation and employee engagement.
