We want Audit Wales to be a place where people are proud to work and enjoy what they do - an engaged and inclusive environment in which everyone can excel.
Each year we run a survey to ask our staff about what it’s like to work here, to help make sure we keep our finger on the pulse of the employee experience.
We use the same core questionnaire that is used in the Civil Service People Survey (CSPS) [opens in new window].
The questionnaire covers a range of themes, including:
- leadership and managing change
- resources and workload
- learning and development
- inclusion and fair treatment
- organisational culture, and
- pay and benefits.
A key advantage of using the CSPS questionnaire is that we can benchmark our results against those for the 100 or so organisations that participate in the Civil Service survey. We also draw comparisons with our previous survey results to assess how effective we have been in addressing the issues identified.
Insights from our 2019 survey
In 2019, we contracted BMG Research [opens in new window] to deliver our survey, which ran from early October to mid-November. Eighty percent of staff responded to the survey; a comprehensive sample which provided a wealth of insight on staff perceptions and the employee experience.
The thematic overview gives the average ‘percent positive’ score for each of the key themes in the survey, alongside benchmarking comparisons. Percent positive means the proportion of people that answered ‘strongly agree’ or ‘agree’ to each of the employee experience statements.
