Together, the people who work for the City imagine, build, operate and animate to make life better for a million Edmontonians. The employee experience reflects the diversity of our workplace and doesn't hinge on one thing. It's more than an engagement survey, or a respectful workplace directive, or leadership training, or safety programs. It's those things, and so much more. The employee experience is about listening, learning and doing our part in equipping each other to do our best work.

 June 2020 Employee Check-in Survey Corporate Results

Strengths and Opportunities

Overall employees feel that the City is doing a good job with communication and are confident that their teams are taking the necessary precautions during COVID-19.

In 2018, 52% of employees responded favourably to “In general, information in the City is communicated well”. We saw 85% of employees indicate that “The City Of Edmonton is doing a good job communicating COVID-19 related information to employees”. This is a remarkable change that is worth noting in a trying time.

Employees indicated that they have clear expectations regarding their work. This is an important building point for employees to ensure they have meaningful work. Opportunities include providing employees with more of a voice - more opportunities for employees to give and receive feedback - and meaningful discussion regarding career development.

Recommendation 

The results of this survey show that our greatest opportunities include: career path, feedback and supervisor conversations with employees. These areas could be strongly influenced by enabling conversations training and prioritizing connection with employees.
