An organization depends on its employees. BC Stats conducts ongoing research to make sure the BC Public Service has the information it needs to attract, develop and retain a diverse and talented workforce committed to serving the province of British Columbia.
Workforce Profile (Employment Equity)
Employment equity in the BC Public Service means eliminating barriers to employment and creating a workplace where current and prospective employees receive equitable treatment in hiring, training and promotion.
Information to assess employment equity practices is gathered through BC Stats' surveys and the resulting statistics are used to produce the workforce profile.

New Job Survey
The New Job Survey results are used to understand what attracts people to join the BC Public Service as well as why employees change jobs.
Work Environment Survey (WES)
The Work Environment Survey (WES) measures the health of the work environments within the BC Public Service as well as other public sector organizations through a confidential survey distributed to all employees.
The Exit Survey tracks the reasons why an employee leaves their employment and this feedback is used to develop future strategies for employee engagement and retention.
