Building employee engagement increases productivity and innovation. It has also been linked to a reduction in absenteeism.
Employee engagement in the APS is measured using the APS Employee Engagement Model. This model measures engagement across four dimensions:
- the job performed by the employee
- the team in which they work
- their immediate supervisor, and
- the agency in which they work.
The APSC has started exploring with agencies and industry experts strategies that can be used to strengthen employee engagement and build a strong engagement culture. If you want to get involved, contact the APS Reform Design and Implementation Team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
