In this third DSHS-wide employee survey, 13,344 employees had much to say. Employees appreciate the chance to work with and assist needy residents of Washington State; supportive, dedicated co-workers; supervisors who support, respect, listen, encourage autonomy, and reward good work; clear information and guidelines; and fair treatment especially in hiring/promotions. Employees would like to see management decisions that are based on in-depth knowledge of the realities and pressures of line work; input from line workers who will be impacted by decisions; respect for employees' time, expertise, and dedication; accountability for all levels of the organization; and concern for the welfare of both clients and employees, rather than "bean counting" and "number crunching."
