The City of Wentzville has been named to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch 2020 Top Workplace list. This list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey, conducted by Energage, which measures several aspects of workplace culture, including how employees feel about pay, benefits, managers and leadership – just to name a few.
The anonymous survey also measures employee engagement, retention and motivation. The City of Wentzville was the only municipal government to be honored again this year. More than 188 City of Wentzville staff members, representing 63% of City employees, responded to the survey this spring, and took the time to provide valuable feedback.
“It is reassuring to know that although 2020 has been far from ‘business as usual,’ our City of Wentzville employees feel connected, respected and appreciated. We are committed to being flexible, providing the best employment experience in local government, and sustaining a workplace that values our employees and their dedication to serving the Wentzville community. Receiving this recognition two years in a row is an honor and we will continue to engage and support our employees moving forward.” said City Administrator Douglas Lee.
Only those employers that scored the highest locally and met national benchmarks made the list. More than 186 organizations in the St. Louis area were surveyed – representing 45,120 employees – however, only 140 organizations were awarded a 2020 Top Workplace designation. The Post-Dispatch produced a special section in the Aug. 2, Sunday edition, which can be viewed here: www.wentzvillemo.org/2020topworkplace.
