Staff Action Planning
Staff Engagement often fails at the point of plan delivery. Ethelo is being assessed to see how this failure point can be overcome. Public Works staff already identified a set of improvement actions as a result of an existing annual survey and follow-up workshop. Ethelo is being used to combine management’s rigor and budgetary constraints with the staff’s knowledge and needs to generate a pragmatic, highly-supported action plan. The number of potential permutations of plan is in the millions, but Ethelo will create positive staff engagement and help management see the best results quickly and transparently.
