In a continued effort to recruit, develop, and retain an outstanding, diverse, and fully engaged workforce, Human Resource Services (HRS) invites separated employees to participate in the Washington State University (WSU) Exit Survey. The survey provides separated employees with a forum to submit anonymous responses regarding their experience with WSU through an online system.

Survey responses are analyzed on an annual basis and used to evaluate our services and continue building the best possible work environment for our employees.

If you are a separating employee and wish to take the exit survey, please visit the HRS Exit Survey webpage.

FY 2017 Survey Summary

Overall, the responses received in fiscal year (FY) 2017 were consistent with the responses in FY 2016. Respondents indicated they enjoyed the benefits package, professional development/educational opportunities, and their co-workers/colleagues. Most respondents who voluntarily separated from WSU indicated retirement as the primary reason. Most respondents indicated they would recommend WSU as an employer to others.

Since initiating the online Exit Survey, HRS has been able to identify potential trends. Response data for key survey questions are also showcased in the summary document.

The FY 2017 Exit Survey Summary has been shared with President Schulz and he recognizes the value of this information. HRS will be working with University leaders to address areas of concern.
