State of the Nation survey for 2023 - closes Friday!
Herewith an extract from the story in the latest mag:
The key takeaway from this year’s survey is that respondents are gloomier about pretty much everything than they were last year, and generally more negative in most indicators than they have been for the last five surveys.
All but two of the 15 tracked indicators are worse than last year, and ten of the indicators are the lowest they have been in the five most recent surveys starting from 2019.
Biggest drop from last year was the question about whether WorkSafe is performing well, which has dropped ten percentage points to only 33.9%, a position now far removed from the halcyon days of 2019 when the regulator scored 61.3%.
The other big drop was the question about whether New Zealand’s H&S performance is improving, down eight percentage points from 2022 to 58.4%; going back to 2019, it was at 75.9%.
The only good news in the survey comes with the final question, which asks about discussing risks with other businesses who share the site. This went up 5.6 points from last year to reach 72.8%, which is also the highest score for that question in the last five surveys.
