The State of Colorado’s 2019 Employee Engagement Survey will launch on Monday, Nov.
The Employee Engagement Survey helps organizations meet the challenge of managing
human capital to improve performance. The State of Colorado has leveraged the survey
to drive performance management improvements, increase productivity, increase customer
loyalty, retain the best employees and more.
Business research in change management and organizational process design has shown
that sustained, successful change can be modeled and repeated, but only if the change
strategy reaches deep into the organization and connects with every employee in a
meaningful way. Many of the change and improvement methodologies used by organizations
today are not based on this crucial concept. Because they do not engage the hearts
and minds of all employees in the organization, they fail. The State of Colorado’s
Employee Engagement Survey has been specifically designed to overcome this barrier.
Numerous studies over the last few years have repeatedly shown that today’s employees
want more. They want a meaningful culture, a good manager and the chance to work and
grow using their unique strengths. When these conditions are present, organizations
attract and keep the most talented people, and they forge strong, lasting bonds with
Research has shown that employees need to feel as though they are significant individuals,
engaged in a significant endeavor, in a significant environment. The Employee Engagement
Survey will let us know how we are doing as managers and co-workers in building that
kind of workplace for one another.
