There are over 8,000 Department of Corrections (DOC) employees located in approximately 120 locations across the state. The work accomplished by the DOC is of critical importance to Washington's goal of Healthy and Safe Communities.
In the Department of Corrections strategic plan, Engaged and Respected Employees is a key goal for the agency and one of the Department's agency values. The Washington State Employee Engagement Survey gathers feedback on practices that influence job satisfaction, engagement, leadership, customer value and job support. Responses help leaders, managers and supervisors guide and measure their improvement efforts.
