Western has surveyed employees every other year, starting in 1997, using the same methodology, and during the same time of year.
The state provides a survey ( either write-in – fill in the bubble – type, or a secure online survey. Employees are anonymous, but are tracked, so that each only submits one survey.
Western has always succeeded in getting a survey return rate of 70% or better.
