APS employee census highlights

​​​​​​​​The Department of Home Affairs participates in the annual Australian Public Service (APS) Employee Census (Census). The Census collects information from APS employees on important issues including their health and wellbeing, innovation, workplace behaviour, leadership, and general impressions of the APS and the agency.

The Department of Home Affairs is committed to taking action on census results, and uses them to assess and monitor staff engagement and gauge what is important to our most important asset – our people. 

Results for each year are contained in the Home Affairs Highlights Report, which can be found under the headings below.

In 2023, to support APS Reform Agenda, Priority three: An APS that is a model employer, a separate 2023 Census Action Plan for the Department, and Australian Border Force have been developed.
