A brief description of the institution’s methodology for evaluating employee satisfaction and engagement:
Across the University of Tennessee System, we want to ensure that UT is a great place to work. In fall 2021, McLean & Company, an independent human resources research firm, administered an employee engagement survey to gather insights and feedback regarding the overall work environment at UT. The survey helped us establish an engagement baseline and will be continuously useful as UT strives to reach its greatest decade in history.

The survey gathered employees’ feelings of energy and purpose, diversity, satisfaction, benefits, culture, employee empowerment, learning and development, work-life balance and more.

No public actions have been taken as a result of the survey.
