Why we conduct this survey?

Introduction (INT) - Question identifier:INT_R10

We invite you to participate in the seventh Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) conducted by Statistics Canada on behalf of the Office of the Chief Human Resources Officer from the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat.

Your participation is very important. The results of the PSES will enable departments and agencies to strengthen people management practices by identifying what is working well and where improvements are required. This voluntary survey is conducted under the authority of the Statistics Act, which ensures that the information you provide will be kept confidential. In addition, Statistics Canada will safeguard your identity by grouping your responses with those of other respondents when reporting results. Individual responses and results for very small groups will never be shared with government departments or agencies.

A limited number of employees from Statistics Canada and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat will have access to the data for statistical and research purposes and will adhere to the same security and confidentiality requirements as other surveys conducted by Statistics Canada.

The survey takes approximately 20 to 25 minutes to complete. You may save your answers and return to the survey at any point in time. The deadline to submit your completed questionnaire is September 29, 2017. We encourage all employees, including students, to participate in this survey.

We appreciate your participation and contribution to creating a better workplace.

Harassment (HAR)
