There are just a few days left to complete UT’s employee engagement survey. The statewide survey wraps up on Tuesday, November 15.
Response rates are at 44 percent across the UT system and at 43 percent on the Knoxville campus. This is a great response rate, but there is still time to boost the numbers higher.
The confidential survey is designed to gauge opinions and needs in areas such as pay, benefits, job satisfaction, professional development, performance evaluation, leadership, and communication.
Responses are being sent directly to the company, who have several measures in place to protect individual’s confidentiality.
All UT system employees (Institute of Agriculture, Institute for Public Service) and UT Knoxville campus hourly employees have received several electronic invitations to take the survey. More than 500 paper surveys and envelopes have been delivered to employees across the Knoxville campus.
UT Knoxville faculty and exempt staff took the same survey earlier this year, so only new Knoxville campus employees in these categories are being solicited to respond this month.
The online survey will be accessible 24 hours a day, through November 15. It takes about 20 minutes to complete.
In the spring, UT employees will be invited to attend open forums to hear about the results, which for Knoxville, will be combined with faculty and staff-exempt employees data collected earlier this year.
