2017 Public Service Employee Survey Results by Theme for National Energy Board by Question 103. Please indicate your occupational group and level. Occupational group and level - NB

The results of the 2017 Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) are presented by key people management themes (i.e., employee engagement, leadership, workforce, workplace). Results are not shown when there is no historical comparison, or when there is an insufficient number of responses.

Note: Due to rounding, percentages may not add to 100. Results have been adjusted for non-response to better represent the target population. Therefore, percentages should not be used to determine the number of respondents within a response category.
