CDC Isolation & Exposure Calculator

Dec 5, 2023

Hey Team,

I've been fielding a lot of questions about COVID exposure lately, so I thought it'd be helpful to have the CDC Isolation & Exposure Calculator easily accessible for everyone. You can now find it a direct link to this below:

What to Do If You Were Exposed to COVID-19 (CDC)

It's a handy tool from the CDC that guides you through the steps in case of exposure.

Feel free to check it out whenever you need. Let's keep looking out for each other.

Thanks,

Results of Fiscal Year 2023 Employee Satisfaction and Internal Services Survey

Aug 4, 2023

THANK YOU to everyone who participated and shared your comments in the 13th annual employee survey. There were approximately 705 surveys distributed (based on the number of FT & PT employees on staff as of mid-July) and 297 responses collected, providing a 42.1% response rate. This is the LARGEST response rate ever received! CHEERS

The information gathered regarding internal service areas is used in conjunction with our performance measurement reporting. There was improvement in the satisfaction with internal services provided as 89.9% of respondents indicated they were “extremely” and “moderately” satisfied for FY23; whereas, FY22 reflected 83.6%. Although, FY22 was a little more evenly split between “extremely” and “moderately” satisfied. The results also indicate 94.3% of the respondents ranked overall satisfaction with your department as “excellent” and “good” compared to 89.1% in FY22. Overall satisfaction with the organization as a whole came in at 96.6% this year compared to 89.6% last year. Consequently, there are still opportunities for improvements to be made. A summary of the survey results are available for your review and reference.

FY23 Summary Survey Results

A comparison of responses over the past 13 years has been updated to show those internal service areas which performed better than others. Most of the service areas reflect a slight decline from FY22 to FY23, although all categories in FY23 received a grade point above a 3.0 (good). This is the first time that the multi-year average scores identify all service areas at or above “good”. This year's highest score goes to City Care Center. Five of the service areas surveyed reflect their highest score to date and/or match their highest score from a previous year. Two service areas received their lowest score to date. Fluctuations with results from year to year are common based on the number of responses in a given year. One other area of note, Radio Services received the largest positive change this year.

FY23 Cumulative GPA Scores

Thank you again for sharing your opinions and taking the time to complete this year’s survey. This was the BEST year ever for employee participation. Your dedication and service to the City of Bowling Green, and especially to your fellow co-workers is very much appreciated!
