APS Employee Census

Each year IP Australia employees are invited to participate in the annual Australian Public Service (APS) Employee Census (the Census). It helps us understand what's working well for our staff and what could be improved.

What is the APS Employee Census?

The APS Employee Census is an annual survey released by the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC). It's used to gather confidential information from current employees about their experience working at our agency and the APS.

The 2023 APS Employee Census is voluntary and an opportunity for IP Australia staff to share their views about working at IP Australia and in the broader APS. Census results are used by IP Australia to inform planning, reform and other initiatives. The findings help us to evaluate and improve working conditions for all staff across the APS. 

The Census collects information on important workforce issues, such as capability, wellbeing, innovation, and general impressions. 

Our Agency results and Action Plan

We're proud of what makes IP Australia a great place to work and are committed to improving in areas where we could do better. We publish our results to share how our staff feel about working with us and to demonstrate our commitment to continuous improvement.

Results from previous years


All reporting is subject to strict privacy rules. See the privacy policy and participant information on the APSC website.

We appreciate the time and effort our staff put into completing the Census. We use the valuable insights to identify areas for improvement, inform our current and future workforce planning, and celebrate our successes.
