The quick Employee Check-in surveys measures the employee experience between the more detailed biennial surveys. Going forward the check-in surveys will be sent three times a year; prior to and including 2021 the survey was sent quarterly.

Thank you to the 5,713 City employees who participated in the October 2021 employee check-in survey; nearly half the corporation participated (47%). Employees were asked about well-being, diversity and inclusion, respect in the workplace, and empowerment.

Although some scores have declined, it is important to the City of Edmonton to hear from employees about their experience of working at the City. Employees are invited to comment on every question, and the scores and the comments together help people leaders better understand what they can do to support a positive employee experience.

The overall employee engagement score (eSat) is 65, slightly lower than the score of 68 in the last check-in in June 2021. The score for recommending the City of Edmonton as a great place to work (63) is also down slightly from June 2021 (66).
