Trend over time:
Why this is Important:
Job satisfaction is critical to a productive and effective workforce. This goal is aimed at continuing to increase the level of satisfaction among County employees.
How progress is measured:
Employee rating of satisfaction with job (percent of employees indicating more satisfied than dissatisfied) on annual employee survey. (Note: survey covers only those departments whose directors were appointed by the County manager)
Maricopa County Research and Reporting, Annual Employee Satisfaction Survey
Where we are:
Current indicator value (FY2011): 82.0%
In FY2011, the 82% percent of employees indicated they were satisfied with their jobs at Maricopa County. While the County is slightly below its goal of 85%, 82% is a positive indicator that the County remains a great place to work. While the current economic challenges are having a toll on employee morale, the County continues to use its limited resources to value and assist its employees. Some of the reasons the County remains a great place to work are: its total compensation package, safe work environments, job security due of fiscal management, capital improvement projects to provide employees the tools and work space to do their job, training opportunities, and coworkers, supervisors, and management dedicated to serving the citizens of Maricopa County.
