Our staff take part in the annual Australian Public Service (APS) employee census, which asks APS employees about their attitudes and opinions on a range of work-related issues, including health and wellbeing, attendance, performance management, leadership, and general impressions of the APS.

The APS employee census is conducted in May each year.

In 2022, we achieved an 80% response rate to the census, with 92 out of 115 of our staff participating.

To promote transparency, we, along with many other agencies, make our census report public. You can download the report (as PDF or Excel files) at the bottom of this page.


The 2022 APS employee census returned an overwhelmingly positive report for the ACNC.

As we continued to work through the challenges brought about by the pandemic in 2020 and 2021 moving into a new way of working in 2022, we once again saw improvements in a range of aspects of employment at the ACNC.
