The Tennessean Names Tennessee Department of General Services A Winner of Middle Tennessee Top Workplaces 2021 Award
The State of Tennessee Department of General Services (DGS) is the recipient of a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by the
Tennessean. This is the second consecutive year DGS has been named the award.
The list of Top Workplaces is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 18 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection.
DGS received an overwhelming amount of participation from employees, with 78 percent of all employees completing the survey and contributing to the ratings that qualified the department for the Top Workplaces accolade.
This year’s results saw significant improvement compared to the results from DGS employees over the past two years. “Clued-in employees” ranked the highest of the culture drivers surveyed in 2021.
In the past, DGS’ analysis of the survey findings led to the launch of employee engagement initiatives and appreciation efforts such as the Employee Engagement Task Force and other programming. These initiatives will continue this year as the department continues to celebrate its successes while also addressing the challenges presented in the 2021 survey.
