The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt he lives and habits of all Canadians. Over the past few months, many public service employees have experienced major changes in their work and lifestyle. In light of this, a series of questionnaires has been developed to gather information that will help departments and agencies shed light on the impact of these changes on employees, and that will allow us to be agile and adapt over time. The questionnaires will cover different topics, such as mental health and wellness, the current work environment, leadership and support, and the ways we will conduct work in the future. A number of questions may be repeated from one questionnaire to the next to help determine how employee circumstances are evolving over time.

The results of this survey will help us assess the state of our workforce in near real time, provide timely information on the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis and influence the development of tools and action plans to better support our employees going forward.
