County Family ,

For the first time in the County's history, we have commissioned a survey to be distributed to all employees. Your voice and your ideas are important to the County's future, and we have asked all Department Heads to provide you approximately 15-20 minutes to respond to the survey.

The link at http://secure.facilitate.com/oces.shtml will take you to a secure, private web site where you can take your confidential survey. Once you complete the survey, you may submit it directly to MGH Consulting, the firm that is responsible for managing the Countywide survey and analyzing the results. The deadline to complete the survey is August 31. Survey results will be available in the fall.

In addition to the employee survey, the Strategic Focus process will move to the next level with interviews of identified internal and external public/private "stakeholders" which will be conducted by trained Leadership Academy graduates. A special Strategic Focus web site is being developed where current and archived information will be posted to keep employees and the public in the loop. The entire Strategic Focus process will culminate in October with a two-day Strategic Focus workshop.

Once completed, our new strategic plan will create a renewed vision for the future of the County as we enter a new era of successes. In the coming months, please watch the County Connection newsletter and other mailings for updates on the progress of developing our Strategic Focus.

We thank you for taking time to participate in the survey during this exciting period at the County of Orange.

Sincerely,

Bill Campbell, Chairman
Orange County Board of Supervisors
Thomas G. Mauk
County Executive Officer
