Services Australia staff say performance targets negatively impact work

Frontline Services Australia staff say their work is being negatively affected by pressure to meet performance targets and they don’t feel trusted or respected by their employer, a new survey reveals.
A report by the Community and Public Sector Union claimed excessive oversight – including intrusive questions about employees’ toilet breaks – and restrictive work practices were having a “negative effect on staff wellbeing, customer service and workplace culture”.
The survey of 1,571 Services Australia staff members found 79% did not feel the way the agency managed its employees showed they were trusted or respected.
