The 2021 Employee Engagement Survey is now underway, and King County leaders want to hear from you about what is going well and where we need to improve.

King County Executive Dow Constantine, King County Council Chair Claudia Balducci, Assessor John Wilson, and Elections Director Julie Wise recorded a short video about why participating in the Employee Engagement Survey is so important. Watch the video.

Most employees will receive an email in their King County inbox between Monday, March 8, and Tuesday, March 9, from KC Employee Survey ( inviting them to have their say in this year’s survey, which runs from March 8-26.

The survey — which can be taken on your work computer or a mobile device — will take no more than 15 minutes and can be done during work time. Your responses are 100% anonymous and cannot be traced back to you.
