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

We have a number of channels for employees to provide feedback
including but not limited to the following:
- Individual relationships between employees and supervisors
- Department staff meetings
- University Staff Personnel Committee (USPC), a group of elected exempt and
non-exempt staff who manage a feedback system/suggestion box; and who are included as a socializing and sounding board for relevant policy review and input; and more.
- HR Roundtable – a forum for managers who are direct reports to the President
and his cabinet members. This group is a resource for communicating and sharing
ideas; reviewing and providing feedback on policies; sharing information to direct and indirect reports in a more consistent manner, etc.
- University Staff Forum – a monthly meeting open to faculty and staff for
information sharing, presentations, the introduction of new staff, and more
- Faculty Meeting – monthly during the academic year
- Diversity Advocates for recruitment searches.
- Get to Know Bucknell – orientation for new staff to higher education and Bucknell University
- And many other informal open-door opportunities for staff to speak with leaders, managers, or even the President as applicable.

A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation:

Informal review of feedback obtained from any of the above venues either with HR, with Faculty, with our Operations Management Group (direct reports to the President), or with the Presidents as necessary.
