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

Engagement levels are determined based on employees’ responses to nine questions that measure their connections to the organization across three dimensions:
 Rational: How well employees understand their roles and responsibilities
(the "thinking" part of the equation)
 Emotional: How much passion and energy they bring to their work (the "feeling" part of the equation)
 Motivational: How well they perform in their roles (the "acting" part of the equation).
Based on a statistical analysis of their responses to all nine questions, survey respondents are clustered into four groups:
 Engaged: Those giving full discretionary effort, with high scores on all three dimensions
 Enrolled: The partly engaged, with higher scores on the rational and motivational dimensions, but less connected emotionally
 Disenchanted: The partly disengaged, with lower scores on all three components of engagement, especially the emotional connection
 Disengaged: Those who have disconnected rationally, emotionally and lack motivation


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

Action plans created by leaders were based on unit results, then implemented. Updates on action planning were submitted to their supervisors.
