New survey seeks staff opinions on working at UC

UC is launching a survey to learn more about what its non-represented (policy-covered) staff thinks about working at the university.

The survey aims to help UC better understand the views, experiences and needs of non-represented staff on topics related to working at UC, including career development, performance management and workplace collaboration.

This is the second staff engagement survey; the first was in 2012.  Results from that survey were shared with UCOP senior leadership and the chancellor or senior administrators at each location. By comparing the results of the two surveys, UC Human Resources will get insight into areas where progress has been made and areas that need further effort and focus.

About 20,000 of UC’s roughly 50,000 non-represented staff will be randomly selected to participate in the UC Staff Engagement Survey.  During the week of March 30, the representative sample of staff members will receive an email from Towers Watson, a firm conducting the survey on UC’s behalf, with an invitation to take the survey.

The survey is completely confidential. Individual responses to the survey and personally identifying information will not be shared with UC.
