Overall, we were thrilled to see that our employees rated us highly. However, we also know that there are always areas where we can improve and appreciate the opportunity to do so.
One area employees indicated they would like to see improvement is in providing opportunities to socialize and celebrate special events. Regrettably, the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to cancel many of the in-person events we typically hold – such as employee appreciation events like Gannett Days and winter holiday celebrations – but we are taking this feedback as a welcome challenge as we navigate our new normal and fully transition to a hybrid work model in 2022.
Our employee resource groups (ERGs) are taking up the charge to provide new ways to socialize and build virtual communities. LGBTQ+ of Gannett Fleming holds a virtual monthly meetup called “Rainbow Connection,” an hour for discussion and allyship on LGBTQ+ topics. Additionally, Future Generations of Gannett Fleming holds “Ask Me Anything” sessions highlighting different Gannett Fleming employees and important topics, such as 401(k)s. And Connected Women at Gannett Fleming™ holds panel and group discussions on topics like parenting while working from home and self-advocacy.
We are excited to find new ways to connect and celebrate with our Gannett Fleming family!
