City Attorney’s Office takes action on findings from employee engagement survey
Employees in the City Attorney’s Office have made several workplace improvements based on the results of their 2014 My Minneapolis employee engagement survey. Check out the plan to see if any of the changes make sense for your department or division.
The City Attorney’s Office has:
- Created a new committee to improve orientation of new employees. The Connected and Onboard (CAO) Committee works on how to best welcome new employees and provide them with the tools and information they need to hit the ground running and begin accomplishing important work and goals more quickly.
- Offered the opportunity for staff to attend court with attorneys or go on ride-alongs with police officers. Several employees have taken advantage of this new opportunity for professional growth.
- Restarted a brown-bag lunch learning series for employees to educate their colleagues on their work and their interests.
- Developed a survey for support staff including paralegals, investigators and crime victim witness staff to better understand their training and development needs.
- Created a new intranet site that allows staff to share training ideas and post opportunities for each other.
- Added lists and charts to the department intranet site about whom to contact within the divisions for help on specific topics or issues.
- Developed a process to provide bus passes and parking vouchers to victims and witnesses to make it easier for them to attend court.
