Employee Engagement Survey
The online survey will take about 15 minutes to complete, and every individual’s responses and specific answers will be kept strictly confidential. The data collected this year will serve as a baseline to measure our progress and will be compared to other workplaces in the state. The survey will be conducted every other year. The information we collect in the future will determine how effective our improvement efforts are in the long term.
