2014 Public Service Employee Survey Results

Hard-working civil servants hampered by downsizing?

Treasury Board released the latest Public Service Employee Survey, 2014 results this week and we invite you to read them by clicking here.  For our membership, departmental results will be more helpful in understanding workplace issues - we expect to receive this breakdown in early March.

The media is also reporting and summarizing the results. You can read the Ottawa Citizen article and Le Droit's article by clicking here.  There is a particular emphasis on the finding that one in five federal civil servants experienced harassment in the workplace.

We note other trends that could relate to this government's efforts to downsize and 'streamline' the civil service.  For example, while our members continue to be hard-working (93% are 'willing to put in the extra effort to get the job done'), they are not getting the support they need ('I have the support at work to provide a high level of service' dropped from 75% to 66%).

Other results illustrate that workload has increased while resources decline.

Another interesting result - civil servants continue to have confidence in their direct supervisors, but not so much in senior management.

This survey, which you were invited to fill out, is conducted every three years. The 2014 edition of the survey is the first to distinguish between the kinds of harassment workers face on the job, and it is hoped that the employer will take steps to address the issues raised.
