City of Clinton Employee Survey

Students and faculty in the School of Planning and Public Affairs conducted a survey of employee satisfaction, needs, and opportunities among City of Clinton employees. 

In the spring of 2023, the City of Clinton requested assistance from the Iowa Initiative for Sustainable Communities (IISC) to conduct a survey of the City’s workforce. The survey aimed to provide employees with an opportunity to express their opinions, concerns, and ideas about their work environment, department/organizational culture, and overall job satisfaction.

In total, 158 City of Clinton full-time and part-time employees responded to the survey. The results of this survey are intended to help the Council, Administration, and Department leaders better understand the needs and concerns of its employees and identify areas for improvement.

The survey was conducted anonymously and was sent to all part-time and full-time employees of the City, achieving a high response rate of 73%. The survey covered a wide range of topics such as job satisfaction and dissatisfaction, ability to perform core functions, job safety, work culture, relationship with City Council, performance evaluations, and areas of improvement.

The responses were collected and analyzed using both quantitative and qualitative methods to ensure a comprehensive representation of employees’ views.
The survey was designed to protect the anonymity of respondents. A final report was provided to City of Clinton officials.
