PA-12: Assessing Employee Satisfaction
|1.00 / 1.00||
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:
The University of Washington conducts employee satisfaction and engagement surveys periodically, but more frequently within individual departments and operational units. For example, UW-IT measures employee satisfaction annually through an anonymous survey that asks staff to rank factors that make an exemplary organization. Another specific example is the work of our Transforming Administration Project (TAP) which continues our improvement efforts to bring the University's often siloed administrative units together to work as one university administration, with a common vision, a culture of service, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Part of the survey includes measuring employee satisfaction.
A brief description of the mechanism(s) by which the institution addresses issues raised by the evaluation (including examples from the previous three years):
The Transforming Administration Project (TAP) coordinates a campus wide survey every other year to know and understand the needs of our campus partners across all three of our campuses. The survey was launched in 2017.
