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

Temple University is always interested in the satisfaction and engagement of its faculty and staff. Periodically, the university surveys its employees to gauge satisfaction level. In addition, at strategic times, focus groups of specific groups are convened to solicit feedback on a particular issue. Finally, there is a continual open line of communication within the university that encourages employees to provide their opinions to the appropriate senior leader in schools, colleges and departments. In 2013, the university completed the Modern Think Great Colleges to Work for Survey, and had a 25% response rate (2400 staff/faculty). In 2014, 54% of staff and full time faculty participated in the Workplace Dynamics Top Workplaces Survey.
