City of Lenexa, Kansas – Observations and assessment

(Former Employee) Lenexa, KS

ProsThe City’s benefit package offered substantial medical and dental coverage for individuals (employee) and dependents (spouse and/or children). Competitive with private sector packages.

Cons•The BMPs observed and practiced by upper-management sometimes adversely affect non-management employees.
•Encountered age-related bias from fellow co-workers and management.
•Promotion and/or education opportunities discussed as inclusive terms of employment were not supported by upper/management during duration of employment. (Multiple requests for job-related training opportunities were denied by management, despite ‘Meets Expectation’ performance reviews.)

Advice to Senior Management•Encourage employees in personal development. Your employees are your assets.
•Require ‘effective communication’ courses/credits of all management personnel, with potential for 'maintenance' level criteria.
•Communication is a quintessential tool in contemporary America. Effective communication can ‘make’ or ‘break’ a deal.
•Incorporate sensitivity training as part of employee curriculum for all personnel – non/management alike.
•Re-evaluate City’s benefits’ policy and/or documentation on education reimbursement. If employees’ requests are within the guidelines, re-evaluate departmental policies on dis/approving continuing education requests. Be consistent.
