As an employer, the Government of Nova Scotia wants to ensure a positive work experience for its employees. One of the ways that we can meet this goal is to hear employee feedback about the workplace.
Since 2004, employee surveys have been a regular part of how we gather employee feedback about the work environment and their employment experience. Regular surveys allow employees a chance to anonymously and confidentially share information that helps to improve their work places.
The How's Work Going? survey is based on the Canadian Interjurisdictional Engagement Model. Nova Scotia is a member of the Interjurisdictional Engagement & Metrics Team with representation from all 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? survey incorporates all common questions.
