This report highlights areas OGE employees have identified as strengths and areas for possible improvement. The results show that OGE continues to have a highly engaged workforce. This year, OGE scored 88% on the Employee Engagement Index, reflecting leaders, supervisors, and intrinsic work experience.

  • All of the survey items were identified as strengths scoring 65% positive or more and none were identified as challenges (35% negative or more).
  • One-hundred percent (100%) of OGE respondents to the survey agreed that they are willing to put in the extra effort to get a job done.
