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:

An employee satisfaction evaluation is administered every other year. It covers mission & goals, resources, instructional environment, educational support services, work environment, student focus, physical environmental, and faculty and staff support. Additional questions related to accreditation are also included in the survey.

All employees are covered by the evaluation.

Questions can be directed to Marsha Brown at South Seattle Community College.

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

Percentages of satisfied and dissatisfied are compared to results from previous years and a structured time is set up to share results with faculty and staff. A report is created and shared with all faculty and staff, the President's cabinet, the institutional effectiveness committee and the college council. The President's Cabinet and Institutional Effectiveness Committee meet once a year to discuss and plan institutional changes as part of strategic planning, and in years when a employee satisfaction evaluation is conducted this report is included in the scope of what is discussed and planned for the next strategic plan cycle, responding to specific issues that arise during the employee satisfaction evaluation.
