State Employee Engagement Survey

Decades of research have revealed a strong connection between employee engagement and organizational performance. Engaged employees find their work more meaningful and deliver better results. Improving government performance can also increase public confidence in government, which may further boost morale among public servants.

Since 2006, the State Employee Engagement Survey has been the primary source of information on state employee perceptions of the workplace. The Office of Financial Management, State Human Resources Division is responsible for administration of the survey. However, agencies have the option to administer their own survey. Standard question results from self-administering agencies are shared with OFM. The survey is conducted annually during the month of October.
