Employer of Choice Listening Tour

Your voice matters. Elevate your State as an employer of choice.

Employer of Choice Listening Tour

Kara Veitch, the State Personnel Director, and Ramona Gomoll, the State's Chief Human Resources Officer, have embarked on a statewide listening tour to kick off efforts to make Colorado an employer of choice. An employer of choice is an organization that offers great professional culture in an environment that attracts and retains the best employees. Features of the workplace environment available at an employer of choice favor the well-being of employees and the customers or constituents they serve. 

The listening tour will be conducted between August 2019 and March 2020 and aims to engage at least 15,000 State employees. The resulting data from all sources will be analyzed and incorporated into a three-year strategic plan to be implemented by State agencies in Fiscal Year 2021.

Gathering feedback from nearly half of the State's full-time workforce, Veitch and Gomoll aim to fully understand what State employees value in their jobs, what motivates them to continue working in the public interest, and what the State of Colorado can do to attract a new generation of highly-skilled workers in a healthy economy that makes recruitment a challenge.

Please join the State's Personnel Director and the Statewide Chief Human Resources Officer for a listening session. They strive to understand what you value in a job, what motivates you, and what the State can do to attract others committed like you.
