Huron County Work Culture Changing

Huron County’s C-A-O predicts it will take a few years to accomplish a culture change between management and the 700 employees of the county.

Brenda Orchard explains they started the process with a confidential survey with all staff members. The survey was then reviewed with managers and staff to determine together what changes are required, and how that can be done.

Two areas of concern that surfaced through the survey were communications and conflict resolution, and Orchard says they are working to address both of them.

The survey will be repeated next year to get an idea of how much progress they’ve made.
