workforce. Some 17.8 per cent were 29 years or younger; 50.2 per cent were between the ages of 30 and 39; and 32 per cent were over the age of 50. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees were represented by a headcount of 253, or 1.2 per cent of the service workforce. People with a disability were represented by a headcount of 415, or two per cent of the service workforce. And employees who identified as culturally and linguistically diverse totalled 3,453, or 16.8 per cent of the service workforce.

The incorporated 2014 people matter survey was conducted in May 2014 in partnership with the Victorian public sector. Employees from across the ACT public sector were asked to respond to a series of statements on job satisfaction, wellbeing and engagement. A total of 6,299 employees completed the survey, representing a response rate of 29 per cent. These results show strength in the awareness of the ACT public service values and signature behaviours, informal feedback and change management. There is more work to be done on embedding the values and behaviours, and the take-up of formal feedback needs to be strengthened. The ACT public service will be working on this over the next year, as well as on initiatives that can strengthen the one-service approach, particularly around collaboration and agility.

The final component of the State of the service report is the agency survey, which provides comparative reporting on areas such as values, culture, workplace equity and diversity, workforce planning, workforce behaviour, attraction and retention in human resource management.

I commend the report to the Assembly.
