Results of Fiscal Year 2015 Internal Services Employee Survey
Aug 17, 2015
THANK YOU to everyone who participated and shared your comments in the fifth annual Internal Services Employee Survey. For those who chose not to participate this year, please consider providing feedback during next year's process. There were approximately 662 surveys distributed (based on the number of FT & PT employees on staff as of July 31, 2015) and 133 responses collected, providing a 20.1% response rate. Unfortunately, this year's efforts did not yield the best response rate as compared to past years. Without your input, it is difficult to gage the City's overall customer service performance.
Nevertheless, the information gathered will be used in conjunction with our quarterly/annual performance measurement reporting as well as in our efforts to continually improve internal customer satisfaction. The results of the survey are available for your review and reference. (Results)
Additionally, a comparison of responses over the past few years has been updated to show those areas which perform well and those areas still needing further improvement. Each category was given a grade point, and the cumulative scores for FY15 identify all but two of the areas as ranking "good" or better. Custodial/cleaning and repair/maintenance continue to rank low and reflect a considerable decline from the previous year, and ultimately receiving their lowest scores to date. This year's highest score goes to Video Production/Print Design Services, which also received the most notable improvement over the previous year's score. (Scores)
Your dedication and service to the City of Bowling Green, and especially to your fellow co-workers is very much appreciated. Thank you again for your time and consideration.

FY2015 Internal Services Employee Survey
Jul 7, 2015
Dear City Employee:
As part of the annual performance measurement reporting process for Fiscal Year 2015, the City will once again be reviewing several of its internal service areas. These service areas include: Facilities Management, Fleet Maintenance, Human Resources, Communication Equipment Services, Information Technology Services, Legal Services, Procurement & Surplus, Risk Management, Financial Services, and Public Information Services.
To aid in this process, every employee is being asked to complete a short survey. The survey allows you to rate each internal service area and to provide feedback which will help identify any areas still needing improvement and/or the areas that continue to perform well. Without your input, it is difficult to gage the City's overall customer service performance.
The survey will remain open through July 31, 2015. Please click on the below link to access the survey electronically:
Supervisors, you are asked to forward a copy of the survey to any employees that do not regularly have access to email. You can direct them to the City Employee Home Page (http://www.bgky.org/employee-only/) to access the survey link or provide them with a paper copy to complete and return to my attention.
I greatly appreciate your time and consideration with completing the 5th annual Internal Services Employee Survey as we continue to improve our organization.
Thank you in advance for your participation,
Assistant City Manager/City Clerk
