YES Employee Engagement Banner

Employee Engagement centers around how meaningful employees find their jobs, how connected they are to their jobs, and how satisfied they are with their work.

Employee engagement necessitates active attention between managers and employees. It involves making the values and goals of Yolo County clear, and fostering individual’s foremost abilities to support departmental missions.

Engagement is about ensuring organizational commitment in attitude and behavior, and generating a culture of well-being in the workplace. It is about helping employees care about the work they are doing, and maintaining that ‘first day at work’ feeling of interest. It is about maximizing the potential in employees work lives by helping them find their strengths in ways that they most naturally think, feel, and behave.

Survey Results Are In! Thank You For Your Feedback!


In September 2018, the Yolo County YES Team conducted an Employee Engagement Survey to better understand how to best support engagement efforts for both departments and our organization. Fifty-four (54) percent of County employees from participating departments responded to this survey. We are excited to see improvements in all areas of the survey as compared to the 2016 Employee Engagement Survey Results. Survey feedback is being used to assess County employee’s current connection to their work, their departments, the organization, and the County’s mission. The feedback from this survey will also be used to develop recommendations for future action items that are designed to address/increase employee engagement. YES Team members have wrapped up the analysis of survey responses compared to 2016 and results are now available. Department Heads and Department Employee Engagement Team leads have received department specific results to further engagement efforts and programs.

Explore the results and be on the lookout for more information regarding engagement team efforts. Thank you very much for your feedback on this important survey
