Has the institution conducted a survey or other evaluation that allows for anonymous feedback to measure employee satisfaction and engagement during the previous three years?:

Percentage of employees (staff and faculty) assessed, directly or by representative sample (0-100):

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

UMN uses a third party vendor to conduct the survey to ensure the confidentiality of our faculty and staff. Employee engagement is about giving employees the opportunity to have a voice.

When employees use that opportunity to provide thoughtful input and leaders take action, our data show that engagement improves. We conduct the survey biennially so leaders, faculty, and staff have enough time between surveys to take action.

The previous survey took place in the fall of 2017.

The next survey will take place in the fall of 2019.

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

An employee engagement module was created, results from 2017 were shared with campus leaders to celebrate strengths and respond with plans for areas to improve.
