Engaging Our Employees
Avista employee engagement — their level
of commitment to and satisfaction with
employment at Avista — is measured every
two years, beginning in 2006, in partnership
with the independent consulting firm Mercer.
Employee Engagement
* This level of employee engagement is 13 percent higher than the
norm for all
industries as measured
by Mercer.
A wide array of communication tools are used
to keep our employees informed about our
company, our industry and current trends in
the energy industry. These include electronic
and print newsletters and emails, issue-specific
information sheets, pre-packaged information
tools for managers, communications
leadership training and quarterly town hall
meetings with executives.
