A good indicator of the EPA’s organisational health is the results from The People Matter Employee Survey (PMES) undertaken across the NSW Public Service by the Public Service Commission. This survey aims to measure employee perceptions about the workplace culture and their experiences in their organisation, and is open to all employees in the NSW public sector. It was first conducted in 2012 and the 2014 survey results (PDF 1.6MB) have been released.
The 2014 survey results (PDF 1.6MB) showed that the EPA achieved a better score than average on 99 of the 106 measures surveyed. The measures covered issues such as integrity, trust, service, accountability, career development, engagement, equity and diversity, and anti-bullying. Nearly 75% of all EPA staff participated in the survey.
