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

The last formal employee satisfaction survey took place in 2012, which is too old to qualify for this credit.

The current means of employee satisfaction and engagement occurring at UW-Milwaukee revolve around the intense engagement, listening sessions and feedback to handle the large budget cut handed down by the state. UW-Milwaukee has held a very open, representative series of committees and sessions to hear from the campus faculty, staff, and students regarding institutional strategies to make the $30 million cuts over a two year period, while also unable to raise tuition. While not a formal survey, feedback sessions and anonymous online input from the whole campus has come through during this process.

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 "Best Places to Work" committee examined and worked to address issues raised by the 2012 survey.

The year the employee satisfaction and engagement evaluation was last administered:
