2017 Staff Engagement Survey

The following message was sent to all UCOP staff on May 10:

Dear UCOP Colleagues:

During the week of May 15, UC will be conducting its biennial Staff Engagement Survey to learn more about what 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 policy-covered staff on topics related to working at UCOP, including career development, performance management and workplace collaboration.

This is the third staff engagement survey; the last survey was in 2015.  By comparing the results of the past surveys, Human Resources will get insight into areas where progress has been made and areas that need further effort and focus.

Next week, a representative sample of UCOP staff members will receive an email from Willis Towers Watson, a firm conducting the survey on UC’s behalf, with an invitation to take the survey.

This is not spam so please do not delete the email invitation.

I encourage you to participate in the survey, if you receive it. It is an opportunity to get direct feedback from individual staff that will help shape how we will all work at UCOP.

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

The survey was developed by the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies (CUCSA) in collaboration with the Systemwide Human Resources’ Employee Relations department and Willis Towers Watson.

Union-represented employees will not participate in the survey because UC receives their feedback through their union representatives during the collective bargaining process.

Should you have questions about the survey, please contact
