The employees of the town of Flower Mound are highly satisfied with their jobs and have high opinions of the town’s executive leadership and supervisors, according to a recent town staff survey.
In May, the National Research Center conducted the town’s first employee survey since 2014, according to a town staff presentation at a recent planning session. The average response rate for these surveys is about 50 percent, but 64 percent of Flower Mound staff responded to this survey.
Employees’ answers reflected high opinions of how the town is run and the town’s work environment, with a job satisfaction rate of 93 percent. In 2010, staff had a job satisfaction rate of 71 percent.
All ratings of employee-supervisor relationships were higher than the benchmark, according to the town, with about 80 percent of employees believing their supervisors treat employees with respect and at least 70 percent thought their supervisors had effective communication and leadership skills.
The high marks meant 95 percent of all employees felt the town was a good employee, and at least 80 percent planned to remain working for the town in a year.
