Employee Engagement is the extent to which individuals find their work meaningful and energizing, and feel inspired, proud and attached to their organization and their work.1
The Public Service Commission has administered the Prince Edward Island Employee Survey about every two years since 2008.
Key milestones of the 2018 survey:
- Fifth employee survey to-date;
- Highest response rate yet at 68 per cent;
- Highest overall engagement index recorded at 74.7 per cent;
- Largest volume of employee comments ever.
The information from the survey provides department management teams with a great opportunity to meet with employees and discuss how to best respond to the findings. Many positive comments indicate what is working well along with ways to address challenges and improve.
Department results will be shared with employees later in the coming months. At that time, each department will form working groups to action specific initiatives. If you have questions about the Employee Engagement Survey, please contact your department HR manager.
Thank you for your participation.
