Thursday 08 Dec 2022 Perceptions of corruption 2022: Victorian public sector

In May 2022, a variety of communication channels were used to promote an online survey to employees working in a state government department or Victorian public sector agency. Direct communications were sent to the nine state government departments, as well as 94 other major public sector agencies, particularly from the health, transport, and education sectors. Senior leaders were requested to share the link and encourage their staff to participate. In total, 4,405 Victorian public sector employees completed a survey between 5-27 May 2022.
