A Profound Experience
Celebrating its 50th year, Our Place had grown from one location to six across the South of Vancouver Island, increased the breadth of its programs and services, and serves populations with increasingly complex needs.
Recognizing that delivering on its Mission, “to offer our most vulnerable citizens a place to call their own, where we live, share and grow together” – happens in large part due to the commitment, contributions, and courage of the Our Place team, the CEO of Our Place was interested in engaging staff through an online engagement survey as a starting point for a dialogue about how Our Place can continue to be an employer of choice.
Our Data and Insights Team administered our 5-Driver Employee Engagement Survey focused on shedding light on what being a member of the Our Place team is like, from the viewpoint of those who work there, and to serve as a launching point for more fulsome dialogue and action to create an even stronger and more engaged Our Place team.
Our report of findings and recommendations laid out an action-focused Staff Engagement Roadmap designed to leverage the many strengths of Our Place, shore up its key weaknesses, focus leadership energy on key areas for highest impact, and develop and execute a staff-led engagement action plan.
