Employee Survey

How's Work Going?

As an employer, the Government of Nova Scotia has set a goal of creating a positive work experience for its employees. One of the ways that we can meet this goal is to listen to employee input about the workplace.

The information collected through through the “How’s Work Going?” survey gives us the information we need to improve the work environment and enhance employee engagement as well as support a wide range of activities, including organizational development, business planning, policy & strategy development and communication.

Government has chosen to base our survey methodologies on best practices in the industry. Nova Scotia is a member of the Employee Engagement Inter-jurisdictional Team, with representation from most provinces and territories, as well as the Federal Government. This team has developed common employee survey questions to measure employee engagement for use by interested public service jurisdictions across Canada. The “How's Work Going?” Employee Engagement Survey incorporates all of the common questions.

Take a moment to have a look at some of the survey information posted on this site. Employees are encouraged to get involved by joining a departmental action committee, looking at how to address survey results.

The 2015 “How’s Work Going?” survey is now available. This is your opportunity to tell us how you are feeling and help shape the work environment we all share.
