In Fall 2013, the University conducted an employee engagement survey. The results were made available in the first quarter of 2014. At that time, colleges and units were asked to review the results of the survey and identify actions that will continue to create a workplace in which people thrive.
Specifically, colleges and units were asked to:
- Look for areas with greatest impact
- Build on existing efforts where possible
- Support gradual change, as it is more sustainable
In May, I held a webinar to share Extension's results with all employees. During the summer, Extension leadership, centers and units met with their respective teams to review results and identify one to two actions that would make a positive difference. The results of those discussions have been summarized in an Employee Engagement Survey Reportthat is available on the intranet.
Thank you for your participation in the 2013 survey. I look forward to using the results to continue to guide our investment in making Extension a vital and engaged workplace. I also ask that you take time to complete the survey when it is offered again in late 2014.
