A sub-unit of:

    • Patented Medicine Prices Review Board Canada

The results of the 2011 Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) are presented in numerical order, grouped by section headings as they appeared in the questionnaire.

Note: Due to rounding, percentages may not add to 100.

The results from the 2011 and 2008 PSES are presented in the tables below as percentages for each response category, as a positive percentage that combines the responses from the two most positive response categories, and as an average score from 0 to 100 for questions employing a five-point response scale. The average score assigns different weights to each of the five response categories: the more positive the response, the higher the score.

  • Positive Answers are calculated by summing the percentages for the two most positive response categories (e.g., 'Strongly agree' and 'Somewhat agree'), excluding 'Don’t know' and 'Not applicable' responses.
  • The Average Score (1-100) is calculated by assigning a score of 100 to the most positive response category, 75 to the second most positive response category, 50 for the middle response category, 25 to the second most negative response option, and 0 to the most negative response option.

Only employees who answered ‘Yes’ to Question 57 (‘Are you a supervisor?) had the opportunity to answer Question 58 (‘In my work unit, there are effective mechanisms in place to deal with poor performers’). Subsequently, the results for Question 58 are only included in the Demographic Results, under ‘Question 57: Supervisors’.

Discrimination

Discrimination means to treat someone differently or unfairly because of a personal characteristic or distinction which, whether intentional or not, has an effect which imposes disadvantages not imposed upon others or which withholds or limits access to other members of society. There are eleven prohibited grounds under the Canadian Human Rights Act: race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, mental or physical disability and pardoned conviction.
