Step 1: Baseline Survey

Workplace Culture and Employee Engagement Survey
Each organization will be administered a staff-wide culture and engagement survey. The survey results help identify the culture of your organization. To foster candor, Rural Health Education and Services (RHES) will collect the results as a third party. A full report of aggregated responses, a summary of highlights, and recommendations will be shared with the organization. ($499)

Step 2: Training

Leadership and Staff Development Training Services
Once an organization's baseline has been established with results from the survey, the focus will then shift to leadership and staff development training. Organizational leadership may determine which training, and to whom they would be delivered. RHES will evaluate the training and information will be given to the organization regarding best practices on workforce culture and engagement. ($199/hr.)

Step 3: Post-Survey

Workplace Culture and Employee Engagement Post-Survey
Six months to 1-year following training, RHES will re-survey employees of organizations, collect and distribute aggregate data, and compare focus area results with baseline data to determine the level of change achieved. ($299)
