An outside consultant was retained to develop a custom survey for the University. The consultant, an external project manager, the Executive Vice President, and members of Human Resources met with senior leadership to talk about their goals for the survey. Focus groups, open forums, and various methods of communication were used to customize the survey questions for each school and division to identify University-wide and school/division-specific issues to be addressed in the survey. Surveys were sent to all employees with a period of time allowed for responding. Multiple email reminders were sent to potential respondents reminding them to participate. Overall the University averaged a participation rate of approximately 60%
Survey results were provided in detailed, summary, and executive summary formats for various audiences. Key areas for improvement were identified based on two tiers: University-wide issues and School-wide issues. Action planning committees were convened in each school to develop action plans to address issues and further engage employees in improving work culture
