Today is the last day to take the employee engagement survey
Time is running out to take the My Minneapolis Employee Engagement Survey. The survey gives you an opportunity to share your opinions about work. Make your voice heard by participating. You have until 11:59 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 30, to complete the survey.
The City conducts the survey to learn how to improve our work environment to best meet your needs. City employees are the reason for its success, and the City wants to ensure a workplace where you can succeed and feel valued.
The survey is anonymous. No one who works at the City will see your individual survey results. Perceptyx, the survey vendor, has sole access to individual survey results and compiles all of the survey data for City employees by department, division and demographic categories. City employees only see aggregate data and unattributed survey comments.
How to take the survey
Use the unique hyperlink from Perceptyx sent in an email to you. (Don’t share your hyperlink with your colleagues.)
If it’s easier, you may also access the survey via a general link. Find the link on the home page of CityTalk or as an icon on the desktop of most City computers, or visit perceptyx.com/MyMinneapolis. If you use this general link to access the survey, you’ll need to log in to the survey with your employee ID number. Either way, your demographic data is tied to your survey responses to help the City work toward its equity goals. Your demographic data has been preloaded into the survey with your employee ID number. Read the instructions for completing the survey online using the general survey link.
For those who started the survey but haven’t completed it, you can use the link to reenter the survey, add your responses and click submit.
Why take the survey? Because it works
The survey is fast and easy, and it works. You say what you think, and City leaders listen. Past employee engagement surveys have led to several improvements Citywide, including:
- Establishment of educational partnerships with Augsburg College and Saint Mary’s University to offer discounted tuition rates to City employees.
- Creation of the STAR Awards, the employee recognition program, and Minneapolis Matters, the employee newsletter.
- Establishment of an alternative work arrangements policy, which allows for a compressed workweek, flexible work hours and schedules, job sharing, gradual retirement, and more.
The City is interested in tying survey results to demographic data to help us build a more equitable and inclusive work environment. City employees may view demographic data only if five or more employees in that demographic category responded to the survey. For example, City employees won’t have access to department or division data by gender if only four women in the department or division respond to the survey. Similarly City employees won’t have access to department or division data by race if only four people of color in the department or division respond to the survey.
