The SNPS is an important tool for understanding public servants' perceptions of the public service staffing system as well as their awareness of their legal rights and responsibilities regarding political activities. The information gathered in the survey will be used to identify current and emerging trends at government-wide and organizational levels, to inform potential improvements to staffing policies and practices, and better target efforts to safeguard non-partisanship within the federal public service. The survey will provide vital information to managers, human resources advisors and Deputies to improve staffing within their own organizations, and to the Public Service Commission (PSC) on the staffing system as a whole. The information will also be used to support reporting to Parliament via the PSC's Annual Report.
The Public Service Commission’s (PSC) Staffing Dashboard provides timely and relevant data on staffing activities and trends that will give deputy heads, hiring managers and human resources specialists a broader understanding of staffing within their organizations and the public service as a whole. The Staffing Dashboard is an integral feature of the PSC’s New Direction in Staffing (NDS), which includes the renewed Appointment Policy and delegation instrument, effective as of April 1, 2016. The Staffing Dashboard contains information on organizations subject to the Public Service Employment Act only. The purpose of the Staffing Dashboard is to share data available at the PSC with organizations.
The Public Service Commission (PSC) collects data on individuals who apply through the Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS) for advertisements open to Canadians on the PSC’s jobs.gc.ca website. This enables the PSC to assess employment equity (EE) trends and performance regarding the share of external applicants of the following EE groups: Women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities. Student hiring EE data for Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities are based on those who applied and self-declared through PSRS and where a match was found in the PSC hiring and staffing activities files covering the current fiscal year. Students hired under the Post-Secondary Recruitment (PSR) and Co-op/Internship (CO-OP) Programs are excluded.

Staffing activities to and within the public service include appointments to the public service as well as promotions, lateral and downward movements and acting appointments of indeterminate and term employees. Deployments of employees within or between organizations that are subject to the PSEA are counted in lateral and downward movements.

The Survey of Staffing (SOS) is a tool that the Public Service Commission of Canada (PSC) uses to monitor employees’ perceptions of staffing activity within the federal public service and to gauge awareness of their legal rights and responsibilities regarding political activities.
As part of the pilot System-Wide Staffing Audit (pilot audit), a questionnaire was administered to sub-delegated persons and staffing advisors associated with the sample of 386 appointments across the 25 organizations participating in the pilot audit. The purpose of the questionnaire was to provide the Public Service Commission (PSC) with a better understanding of the staffing environment and to contextualize findings of the pilot audit, by gauging these stakeholders’ awareness and understanding of the New Direction in Staffing (NDS), and of their own roles and responsibilities.
These questionnaire results represent a “snapshot” in time: responses were gathered during the early summer of 2017, and were based on perceptions one year after the implementation of the NDS in April 2016. These results were integrated with pilot audit findings stemming from the review of organizational staffing systems and compliance of appointments, which was finalized in 2018.
