Employee Advisory Group Goals + Focus:

  1. To serve as a sounding board and thought partner to the Human Resources team and senior leadership in the planning, shaping and implementation of all people, talent and culture initiatives at Prospect Park Alliance;

  3. To solicit ideas and feedback from employees on how to increase staff engagement that fosters positive employee experiences and builds awareness and support for these activities;
  4. To champion a work environment that fosters communication, collaboration and teamwork;
  5. To review the results of the annual Employee Engagement Survey detailing current levels of staff engagement relative to the prior year’s results and make recommendations for the coming year to address any concerns or trends.

Meetings of the Employee Advisory Group are held approximately once every 4-6 weeks; and staff will participate in the group for periods ranging from 12-18 months. New staff appointments to the group will be considered whenever there is a vacancy.
