Employees (non-providers) across Guthrie have one more week to participate in the 2017 Employee Opinion Survey process. This survey is an important tool used to measure how employees feel about their work environment, their coworkers and manager, and about the Guthrie organization. This year’s survey is an abbreviated survey that consists of 15 Power Items, 6 Engagement Items, and any items that the specific unit or department had previously developed action plans around. Information from this year’s survey will be used to develop action plans that drive improvement across the system.
