The City of North Las Vegas wants to eliminate integrity from its core values.
Also on their way out: Respect, creativity, quality service and leadership.
The move to edit the city’s statement of core values was a suggestion of an employee committee that determined the seven-word statement of core values was too long, according to an email sent Wednesday to city workers by City Manager Qiong Liu.
If the City Council agrees, the city’s core values would be limited to accountability, communication and teamwork. A vote is expected in June.
Some workers in the city, which has been flirting with insolvency for years, said they’ll miss being respectful and having integrity, in particular.
“I myself like our old CORE VALUES better, what happened to “Respect” & Integrity?” Backflow Technician Roy Fabila said in a reply-all response to the city manager’s email. …
The proposal to streamline the city’s core values came out of a survey of employees last October. That survey of more than 600 employees found that 32 percent didn’t know all seven core values.
The same survey showed city employees might be lacking in self-esteem.
When asked to respond to the statement “The City has a positive image to my friends and family,” 36 percent said “disagree,” and 26 percent clicked “strongly disagree.”
