Thank you to the more than half (52%) of City employees who participated in the March 2021 employee check-in survey. In this check-in we asked some of the same questions that were asked a year ago, and many of our results have improved at a corporate level.
The overall employee engagement score is 69, slightly lower than the score of 70 in March 2020. The score for recommending the City of Edmonton as a great place to work (67) is also down slightly from March 2020 (69).
We saw improvement in supervisors recognizing employee contributions, enabling inclusive environments, and having more meaningful discussions about career development.
Scores for work life balance are the same in March 2021 as they were in March 2020. Scores for employee satisfaction with involvement in decisions that affect their work increased slightly, but is an area for continued improvement.
