Loyola Faculty & Staff Opinion Survey
Beginning Wednesday, March 2015 the university will conduct its third employee engagement survey. Employee engagement surveys are a type of tool that organizations use to gather employee perceptions about the workplace. The university conducted its first survey in 2007 and the second one in 2010. Employee participation in the survey process has been well above the norm, with a 72% response rate in 2007 and a 76.9% response rate in 2010.
New to this year’s survey administration are the inclusions of the Health Science Division, the Cuneo and LUREC campuses. All full time faculty and full time and part-time staff that were hired prior to February 9, 2015 are encouraged to participate.
Once again the university has partnered with Towers Watson, an internationally recognized vendor of organizational development services, to administer the survey. On the morning of March 9, eligible Loyolans will receive an email message from Towers Watson. The email message will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org and should arrive in your Outlook Inbox. If you do not receive the survey, check your Spam filters to make sure the message has not been blocked.
Towers Watson, will manage the survey process, sending and receiving all survey responses. No one at the university will be able to access individual survey responses; only aggregate data will be shared. Each department/school must have at least 10 respondents before a report summarizing the data, is shared. Twenty respondents must complete the Comments section of the survey before a Summary Comment report is produced. These efforts help ensure confidentiality is maintained.
The average Loyolan will complete the survey in approximately 20 minutes. If you have questions while completing the on-line survey, please contact the Towers Watson HelpDesk as instructed in the email message. If you have questions about the survey process please contact Jorene Richards, manager of the Training and Development department at email@example.com.
We want to hear from you. Take this opportunity to share your voice about the workplace in the 2015 Loyola Faculty and Staff Opinion Survey.
