Administered by the University’s Institute for Organizational Excellence, the Employee Engagement Survey assists leadership by providing information about work force issues that impact the quality of services ultimately delivered to all customers of the University. By providing information about employee perception of the effectiveness of the University and employee engagement, the Survey helps us better understand the issues impeding employee performance. A necessary element in strategic planning, the Survey can help build organizational effectiveness by actively engaging employees in a continuous process of organizational improvement. To date, the Survey has been administered three times (2012, 2014. 2017).
The 2017 Survey
Employee Engagement Survey Steering Committee
An Employee Engagement Survey Steering Committee has been formed with representatives nominated from each College, School, and Unit (CSU) by their Dean or Vice President. Steering Committee representatives will be responsible for receiving the survey data related to their CSU. Members of Human Resources and the Institute for Organizational Effectiveness will assist representatives with interpreting and leveraging data in their units.
The Survey assesses essential and fundamental aspects of how the organization functions, the climate, potential barriers to improvement, and internal organizational strengths. Survey results are delivered on a scale of 0 to 500. Average scores for the Survey typically fall between 325 and 375. The Survey measures 14 areas that drive organizational performance and engagement. These areas include: Supervision, Team, Quality, Pay, Benefits, Physical Environment, Strategic, Diversity, Information Systems, Internal Communication, External Communication, Employee Engagement, Employee Development, and Job Satisfaction.
