2022 Employee Survey results

The annual Employee Survey is a key tool in our efforts to create a truly welcoming, supportive, and respectful workplace at King County. Employee feedback is essential to realizing this goal.

This past March, approximately 8,300 Executive Branch employees took part in our Annual Employee Survey, which included Sheriff’s Office employees for the first time.

The survey results paint a picture of how employees are thinking and feeling about their roles at King County. The past two years have been a period of stress, uncertainty, and change. So it is no surprise that employee feelings of burnout are on the rise. However, well-being and belonging are trending upwards. Click here to see a brief video about the survey and link to view detailed results by department and division.
