Employee Engagement Survey
Your voice matters
We know that in order to provide great service to the public, King County needs to be a great place to work. The annual employee survey is an important tool to help us get there. The employee survey provides an opportunity to check-in with all employees to learn what is going well and where we need to improve. That is why your participation is critical – we need each employee to provide their point of view so that we can really understand what employees want and need to be fully engaged in their work.
We conduct the all-employee survey annually which allows us to measure our progress in making change within the organization. By participating, you will help us measure our progress from last year and determine areas still needing improvement.
Does the survey make a difference?
Changes from 2017
We are changing the way engagement is measured, aligning it with the county’s performance management system of using frequent feedback to continuously improve. We have contracted with a new vendor for a platform that generates deeper insight into what drives engagement and reveals the impacts of engagement on the organization’s operations. This platform puts us on the cutting edge of employee engagement nationwide and will help us see where the investment in our employees is most valuable.
