Employee Engagement Survey

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.

PSC is administering several short “pulse” surveys in 2021, 2022, and 2023 instead of the traditional 60 question survey. Pulse surveys are shorter in length and based on themes that provide useful information on several facets of engagement at a department level. The first one was focused on Mental Health and Wellness; the second was focused on Diversity and Inclusion. This third survey is unique in that its theme is centered around concepts of working remotely, flexible workplaces, and your experiences with leadership as a civil service employee. This is the final survey of a three-part pulse survey series to measure employee engagement within our public service.

By answering the questions in this survey, your department will be able to build on its strengths and address the challenges that you identify in your answers. Your feedback on your job and workplace will help Shape the Future of the Public Service: supporting the growth of the province through healthy, engaging, inclusive workplaces that we’re proud to contribute to.
