Australian Public Service Employee Census

2022 Results

The APS Employee Census (the Census) is an annual survey conducted since 2012.  It surveys all APS employees each year on workforce issues such as job satisfaction, engagement, wellbeing and leadership. It is an opportunity for employees to tell the Australian Public Service Commissioner and agency heads what they think about working in the APS.

In continuing our commitment to open and transparent reporting, we have released the Royal Australian Mint census results.

Key findings

In 2022, 78 percent of Royal Australian Mint employees participated in the APS Census which is an increase of 22% from 2021. Overall, the Mint’s Census results compared favourably with the APS as a whole and other APS agencies.

We continued to receive well above average responses in areas such as:

  • employee engagement
  • workgroup performance
  • workplace conditions.

However, a significant number of areas received decreases from responses in the previous census.

Where to from here

We have committed to maintaining the positive aspects reflected in the results, whilst working on elements that improve the experience of staff. Our priorities include enhancing our:

  • communication
  • leadership and innovation
  • diversity and inclusion, and recognition.

These priorities have been incorporated into our Workforce Plan. Strategies supporting these priorities will be reported in our Annual Report.
