Each survey, including the most recent from 2014, is used to compare the responses across the years, which allows the Office of Human Resources to build on strengths and address opportunities for improvement as identified in the reports. Following the release of the overall institutional results, Senior Human Resource Professionals in each of the colleges and vice presidential units attend a workshop to review and discuss the results for their units.
