    MDOC Survey Report

    According to the results from the 2015 Employee Engagement Survey the department's "agree scores" climbed to 50 percent up from 46 percent in 2013. "Agree scores" determine engagement by measuring how many employees agree or strongly agree with positive statements about leadership, career commitment and there work environment. More employees intend to continue their careers with the department and 86 percent said they plan to stay for at least another 12 months.

    The MDOC Exceeds its goal

    Employee participation reached 71 percent overreaching the goal by 5 percent and matching the overall state employee response. The opinions of some 8,600 employee that took the time to complete the survey will be used to help shape the department's future. Changes have already been put in place following previous surveys, including the formation of Effective Process Improvement and Communication (EPIC) teams, enhanced trainings and recognition efforts. As the 2015 results are analyzed by the departments' leaders- positive changes will continue to be made. You can find the state wide results here.
