As a Strategic Planning and Performance Manager championing a data-informed workforce, could you share with us how data is used in Pinellas County Government for strategic planning and performance management?

Based on an analysis of the key drivers of employee satisfaction, our office launched a continuous improvement program last year that’s helping frontline teams as varied as parks and permitting to reduce lost time and build efficiencies. This year, resident priorities from the National Community Survey™ are informing key results for a new strategic plan.
