The overall performance and outlook of our people can best be evidenced by the results of the national Best Practice Australia (BPA) Survey. The nation-wide survey of healthcare sector employees seeks to benchmark an organisation’s culture compared to the industry. The focus for 2013 was on ‘Leadership and Direction’. Some highlights of the report include:
Overall, our culture was rated in the success category - suggesting a strong employee engagement and optimism about the future of the organisation. The clear message was that the majority of employees feel that the organisation provides a climate of respect, puts its values into practice and addresses personal safety issues.
