A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:
The Office of Work-Life and Human Resources worked with an external professional services firm, Towers Watson, to conduct an employee engagement survey for campus-based employees. UK HealthCare also participates in an annual employee engagement survey administered by Press Gainey.

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

Based on these results, each leader will be held accountable by their UK leadership (e.g. President, Provost, EVPFA) for choosing 1-4 items or themes from their survey results to address and have an action plan in place. This is the first year that we have administered the Towers Watson survey.
