This indicator measures whether we are able to attract, develop and retain a professional workforce that can respond to current and emerging regulatory needs.

  1. Sixteen positions were advertised during this period, eight of which were filled before 30 June 2015. These positions include positions that were advertised internally within the Department of Health, within the Australian Public Service, and some specialist positions that were open to eligible members of the community.
  2. Ad hoc messages are also sent directly to staff outside these two channels as the need arises.
  3. TGA weekly editions are not published during the peak holiday periods after Christmas or over the Easter period. We use other internal communication methods, such as the TGA Daily, to maintain continuity of internal communications.

Figure 4 Surveys of staff satisfaction with the TGA and the work they do

TGA staff are surveyed annually. The previous indicator titled "percentage of staff that agree that the work they do is important for public health" is no longer measured in the staff survey and therefore has been removed from this report.

Chart showing surveys of staff satisfaction with the TGA compared to the APS: 2015 - 58% TGA and 55% APS; 2014 - 65% TGA and 59% APS; 2013 - 65% TGA and 62% APS

*Of the 506 survey respondents in 2015, 29% of TGA staff provided a neutral response to this survey question.
