  • The city of Riihimäki conducts an annual personnel survey covering all workplaces. With the personnel survey, we want to get information about the views of employees and supervisors about their own work, their well-being at work and their work community. With the help of the personnel survey, the goal is to find concrete areas of development, both at the work unit level and for the city as a whole, to which the city's employer should pay attention in the future.

    2024 people responded to the 768 personnel survey, which is 62% of the temporary and permanent personnel of the city of Riihimäki. The partner for the survey was Feelback Oy.

    The results of the personnel survey have been compared with the results of similar surveys of other public organizations carried out by the company implementing the survey. Riihimäki's result is overall at a good level and reaches the results of comparison municipalities in almost all areas. According to the results, our strengths are the clarity of the work goals, the content of the work and the perception of the work as meaningful, as well as skillful close supervisor work.
