An engaged employee is one who is fully absorbed by and enthusiastic about their work and that takes positive action to further the organization's reputation and interests.
Measuring employees’ perceptions and attitudes about the work environment is important. Employees who are more engaged produce higher quality work and are less likely to be absent or quit the organization. High performing organizations are those that conduct regular engagement surveys and take action on them.
The City and County of Denver is committed to tracking and responding to employee perspectives in order to build a stronger workforce and consistently improve productivity. The city conducts the survey every other year and the purpose is to hear employee opinions about the work environment. The last survey took place in 2017 and action plans were implemented across the city in all departments and agencies to help continually improve the workplace.
The City and County of Denver 2019 employee engagement survey completion rate is 68%.
Take the Survey. Take the Cup. ROUND 3! is a citywide boxing themed contest that challenges departments/agencies in a friendly competition to see who can reach 100% participation in the survey. Citywide departments/agencies are grouped by size into five competitive classes: Heavyweight, Middleweight, Welterweight, Featherweight, and Bantamweight. A daily leaderboard is posted to show the survey completion progress of departments/agencies. Following the survey period, the winning departments/agencies that reach 100% participation are honored at a trophy ceremony hosted by Mayor Hancock and Karen Niparko.
