Has the institution conducted a survey or other evaluation that allows for anonymous feedback to measure employee satisfaction and engagement during the previous three years?:

Percentage of employees (staff and faculty) assessed, directly or by representative sample (0-100):

A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:

Antioch College engaged with the Wabash-Provost Scholar (WPS) program to conduct comprehensive focus groups and surveys around campus climate and student, faculty, and staff satisfaction; 52% of faculty and staff engaged in the assessment either by survey or through focus groups. The assessment solicited feedback around areas such as job satisfaction, workplace expectations and challenges, communication and coordination across offices, and opportunities for improvement.

In addition to this assessment, the College continuously collects feedback from staff through a number of mechanisms including community meeting, community governance functions, design-build sessions around strategic initiatives, World Cafe format meetings, and the analysis of exit interview data.

A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation (including examples from the previous three years):

The results from the focus group were shared in a community-wide report out and were fed into institutional planning processes. For example, Senior Leadership Team identified “Improve Campus Climate” as a strategic priority for FY16; the College's Diversity Task Force incorporated results from the Campus Climate Focus Groups into the Diversity Strategic Plan, which outlines strategies for creating an inclusive campus, reducing peer-to-peer bullying, and promoting the Honor Code, especially as it relates to respecting different beliefs; and the College's recent decision to revise the College's academic calendar was informed by faculty, staff, and student concerns expressed in the focus groups that Antioch's current calendar led to exhaustion and a feeling of being overworked.
