Even before the ABC was bungling its so-called cabinet files and throwing chief economics correspondent Emma Alberici under a bus, morale among staff at the public broadcaster had dropped even lower than two years ago, when the last staff engagement survey was taken.

According to a summary of results from the most recent survey -- conducted in November last year -- obtained but redacted under freedom of information, staff engagement has dropped from 52% in 2015 to 46% in 2017. Almost 2900 staff responded to the survey, conducted by Aon for the ABC. One of the worst performing criteria was whether action taken as a result of the previous survey had made the ABC a greater place to work -- only 17% of respondents thought this was the case.
