ADF down in the dumps as survey finds morale at a low

THE Department of Defence has played down the results of a survey which found workplace morale was low or moderate among more than half of personnel.

The YourSay Organisational Climate survey collects information on issues such as conditions of service, job satisfaction, career management, behaviours in the workplace and work-life balance and was intended for internal decision-making.

The results were not presented by location but were broken down into gender and whether respondents were navy, army, air force or civilians employees.

A snapshot of 2016 survey results, requested at a recent Senate estimates hearing, found between just 19 and 42 per cent of ADF employees had a high or very high level of morale in their workplace.
