93 Percent of City of Goodyear Employees Say the City is a Good Employer

Results from a recent survey show that nearly all city of Goodyear employees are highly satisfied with working for the city. The National Research Center (NRC), an independent firm, conducted the web-based research measuring 10 dimensions of the employee experience.

The survey found that job satisfaction is strong and morale is at an all-time high. In addition, employees indicated strong confidence in city leadership.

The following are among the results: 


       ·  94% Plan on working for the city a year from now

       ·  93% Think the city of Goodyear is a good employer

       ·  90% Likely to recommend working for the city to someone who asks

       ·  90% Gain satisfaction from their job

       ·  89% Satisfied with their job, overall

       ·  80% Rated benefits positively


There was not a single category in which the city scored lower than benchmarks set by other cities surveyed across the nation by NRC. City Manager Julie Arendall was very pleased with the level of employee participation and overall results.

“I truly believe our employees are our best asset,” said Arendall. “Their voice is important as we continue to build a better Goodyear. This type of research helps us to understand where the city excels, and most-importantly, where we can improve.”

The city of Goodyear conducts this survey every two years. In 2018, the city received higher ratings in 32 categories compared with 2016. Additionally, the city did not receive lower ratings in any categories compared with the last survey.
