2015 State of Colorado Employee Engagement Survey Results


The 2015 Employee Engagement Survey, administered in November 2015, asked state employees to provide their candid opinions on all dimensions of state employment – their supervisors, work experience, innovation, growth and development, resources, and public service.

Every two years, the State of Colorado asks employees to provide feedback on the workplace changes and investments that are important to them through a confidential statewide survey.  Employee input in 2011 and in 2013 provided valuable feedback to department and agency decision makers that have helped identify how we can more effectively deliver our services to the citizens of Colorado and operate state government more efficiently, effectively, and elegantly.

The survey results show Colorado has areas that exceed government norms relative to surveys in other states, including that state employees believe they have the support they need to be innovative, feel a sense of accomplishment in their work, and have more trust and confidence in their supervisor.

The survey results are delivered to the executive directors of all state agencies. Agencies will create specific action plans based on employee feedback.

The 2015 Employee Engagement Survey was anonymous and administered by the Gelfond Group.
