I Have a Best Friend at Work!
The annual employee engagement survey consists of 12 questions—called the Q12—that have been identified by Gallup to be the 12 core elements that best predict employee and workgroup performance, and ultimately link to key business outcomes.
Q10 is “I have a best friend at work.” What does this mean?
- Do you feel you have one or more team members whom you can depend on and trust?
- Are there team members within our organization that have values similar to yours?
- How do relationships within the team help you do your job better?
Our goal is 100 percent!
See how we compare to the other Johns Hopkins hospitals. For those who have not yet participated, there’s still time!
