WorkLife Pulse 2017 – Survey Results
Menno Place uses the Accreditation Canada’s Qmentum program to guide our quality improvement efforts. This involves assessing and improving the services we provide based on Accreditation Canada’s standards.
The WorkLife Pulse tool is an important part of this process. The online survey asks for your opinions on different aspects of your work environment. The results help us identify areas that may need to be improved.
A link to the WorkLife Pulse survey was emailed to each regular and casual staff personal or work email on March 24, 2017 with the closing date, May 1, 2017. Reminder emails went out to staff every 2 weeks to ensure maximum participation. The required number of participants were 181 and 215 surveys were received. All were completed on the web site portal.
The survey consists of 30 questions. The answers to the questions could result in three categories:
- Green flag – Two columns representing the top two positive answers are added and the sum of those two is greater or equal to 75%. Indicates areas that do not require improvement at the time of the report.
- Yellow flag – Two columns representing the top two positive answers are added and the sum of those two is more than or equal to 50% but less than 75%. Indicates areas where some improvement may be required.
- Red flag – The columns representing the top two positive answers are added and the sum of those two is less than 50%. Serves as an alert to the organization. These should be reviewed and determine which ones require further investigation and improvement. Where improvements are necessary, an action plan is recommended.
