The Tompkins County Workplace Climate Initiative
Updates from the Steering Committee
Tompkins County embarked on a Workplace Climate Survey Initiative in 2014, with a survey launch the following year. To address the issues raised by the 2015 survey findings, a Post-Climate Survey Steering Committee was formed in September of that same year. Members of the committee consist of County leadership, Union representatives, and other County employees.
Workplace Climate Initiative Steering Committee:
Christina Dravis (Emergency Response) Chair Thomas Knipe (Planning) Vice Chair
Amy Guererri (Personnel) Amie Hendrix (Youth Services)
Lisa Holmes (Office for the Aging) Joe Mareane (Administration)
Leslyn McBean-Clairborne (Legislature) Doug Perine (DSS/CSEA White Collar)
Stephen Wright (Highway / CSEA Blue Collar) Paula Younger (Administration)
Listed below is an update of some of the ideas that have come out of our meetings. Many of these ideas have already been implemented or are in progress, while others are still in development. All of the ideas revolve around the four priorities identified by the survey results:
Communication, Leadership Development, Employee Engagement & Recognition, and Diversity & Inclusion Infusion.
