Scottsdale wants to survey more city workers to see how it rates on morale issues and workplace conditions.
The city will hold four more employee-feedback sessions next week because of lower-than-expected turnout during last month’s initial attempt.
The additional sessions will be held March 19-20, with the results from all sessions expected no earlier than the week of March 24, Scottsdale spokesman Pat Dodds said.
The sessions allow randomly selected employees to participate in interactive feedback sessions, while also allowing employees to anonymously answer questions about the city’s workplace conditions on a laptop computer. The city was hoping at least 200 would attend the first sessions, but only 144 showed up.
The sessions are being held, in part, because of the City’s Council’s desire to judge employee morale and work conditions. Some council members have blamed those reports on City Manager Jan Dolan, whose status has been the subject of recent closed council meetings.
