Tuesday, April 3, 2018

On Tuesday, April 3, 2018, Human Resources Services will invite all employees system-wide on active Faculty, Administrative, and Classified Staff appointments to participate in the biennial Employee Engagement Survey. The goal of the survey is to gather feedback on employee engagement and satisfaction within the workplace. Employees will receive a link to the survey at their WSU email address or, for those without a WSU email address, at their mailing address on record.

The biennial institution-wide Employee Engagement Survey data is incorporated into the metrics for WSU’s Strategic Plan “Theme 4 – Institutional Effectiveness – Diversity, Integrity and Openness”. Strategic Plan 2014-2019, Progress Report though 2016. Results from the survey are compared to previous and future surveys to measure progress and determine how effective improvement efforts are in the long term.

For the 2018 survey employees can access the survey through the link sent and will no longer be asked to provide employee credentials prior to participating. Your candid feedback and input are important and crucial to identifying strengths and weaknesses in the workplace as we strive to reach a participation rate of 40%.
