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

In March, campus was introduced to the 2019 People Strategy and Listening Tour. Kicking off this effort with a 36-question anonymous survey, geared toward discovering Boise State’s level of campus engagement. In conjunction with the survey, Human Resources hosted focus groups aimed at discovering the elements that drive employee engagement in the workplace.

The survey was sent to 2,628 employees across campus. When the survey closed 1,364 employees responded, marking a 51% response rate. In addition, over 200 employees joined in live listening sessions.

As part of the survey, employees were given an opportunity to provide comments with respect to the areas they feel Boise State does well in, and the areas needing improvement. Human Resources is committed to using this data to work on initiatives focused on improving employee engagement.

From this information, Human Resources has been building out the "People Strategy" to address the issues and concerns raised by the listening tour. More information on the People Strategy can be found here: https://www.boisestate.edu/hrs/boise-state-people-strategy/
