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:

The Cal Poly employee survey contained 108 questions, including several open-ended questions where respondents could provide commentary. The survey was available from February 26, 2014, through April 4, 2014, via a secure online portal. Confidential paper surveys were available to those who did not have access to an Internet-connected computer or who preferred a paper survey. The survey data were analyzed to compare the responses of various groups. Descriptive statistics were calculated by salient group memberships (e.g., position status, gender identity, racial identity) to provide additional information regarding participant responses. Significant and meaningful findings are included in this report based on descriptive and inferential analyses. In addition to the final two open-ended survey questions, additional narrative was requested for several questions throughout the survey. Themes were developed from the open-ended questions and are presented in the full report.

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 campus leadership has committed to the following priorities to be implemented during the 2015-2016 academic year:
-A comprehensive workplace enhancement strategy that will include an identified place for staff to discuss and report workplace issues
-Opportunities, along with managerial support, for personal and professional development; and the inclusion of diversity in the evaluation and RPT processes.
-An extended First Year Experience for new students inclusive of diversity education, respect, and civility.
-Optimizing student services through expanding counseling and academic advisor availability.
Other efforts from the survey data will be prioritized and rolled out as resources become available.
