Employee Engagement

The County defines employee engagement as the alignment of maximum job satisfaction (“I like my work and do it well”) with maximum job contribution (“I help achieve the goals of my organization."). We believe that engagement needs to be a daily priority and shared responsibility, with individuals, supervisors, and leaders doing their part to create great days at work. 

The County administers an engagement survey to gather staff feedback, drive Employee Engagement efforts in Departments and throughout the County, and to measure progress.
