The Workplace RAP Barometer has monitored reconciliation initiatives at the workplace level since 2012, through regular online surveys of participating employees.
Overall, there have been upward trends in reconciliation attitudes and perceptions of workplace RAP impact among employees since 2014. In particular, there have been increases in the level of employees aware of Indigenous staff and the take-up of cultural awareness training, compared with 2014. However, awareness of their organisation having a Reconciliation Action Plan remains mixed, with half of all employees saying they “don’t know” if that is the case or not.
The Barometer also indicates that employees who’ve participated in at least one RAP activity with their current organisation are more likely to have high knowledge about Indigenous people and cultures, compared with those who haven’t.
