Culture Change in Local Government - Part 2:  A Client Perspective

The original event was so successful that the City of Tacoma wanted more - Come join us and see OD in action

In 2013, in response to an unfavorable employee survey and the Mayor’s initiative to increase respect across all City Departments, the Public Works Division of the City of Kent embarked on an employee generated initiative to increase their voice in the workplace.  With support from the top and a consulting resource, a core group built a change initiative that, 5 years later, continues to receive high marks from employees, management and the City Council for its hands on approach at engaging employees in policies and practices that optimize retention, productivity, engagement, professional development and citizen appreciation.  The initiative has built a cadre of internal facilitators and is being used as a workplace transformation model across the City. 

Along with their external consultant, “Powered by Public Works” shared their story with PNODN on December 17th.  Among the attendees were employees of the City of Tacoma who have embarked on a similar mission.  The enthusiasm from that event prompted this follow-up hosted by the City of Tacoma.  It is open to all PNODN members and will be free to those returning for Part 2 of the initial session.

Please join us to hear from City of Kent and City of Tacoma employees about how they drove and are delivering on this culture change success! They will engage with the PNODN audience as co-consultants about how to take their new workplace culture to the next level.
