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

The Survey of Employee Engagement (SEE) was conducted by the Institute for Organizational Excellence. The SEE has a special focus on the key drivers relative to the ability to engage employees towards successfully fulfilling the vision and mission of the organization. Survey was conducted using a representative sample to gain feedback from all sectors. Overall scores typically fall between 325-375 with SUNY Cortland’s Overall score being 371.

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 only major area of that indicated concern was on pay. Although we are somewhat limited in what we can do with pay at the college as we are part of a larger state entity with broad contractual obligations, the college has instituted some internal mechanisms to work to address pay equity that appear when conducting internal reviews of salaries and comparing them with similar positions elsewhere.
