Employee Engagement Survey 2023

Feb. 6, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your continued commitment to student success, performance excellence, developing a culture of high performance and evidence-based leadership. Our strategic plan details how we are growing ourselves to grow others – investing in our people to have the greatest impact on our students and the communities we serve.

As part of this work, we are asking again for your input through the Employee Engagement Survey. Remember, the purpose of the survey is to gain insight from all employees about their work environment, what is working well and where there may be opportunities for improvement. This spring, March 1 – March 15, the survey will be administered for the third time.

The survey provides all employees an opportunity to share feedback that will help supervisors and Georgia Southern leadership ensure that our university fosters a workplace environment where employees feel engaged and valued.

Following the survey, leaders will use the feedback to compare results from last year to assess results specific to their Action Plans, engage in conversations with their employees to focus on improvement, and outline ways to improve by focusing on the highest priority areas updating/revising their Action Plans based on this year’s results. Our goal is to create clear roadmaps to success for all employees, departments, and the institution in a continuous improvement cycle.

Last year, we achieved 65% participation rate in the survey and hope to increase that participation to 70% this year!  Your participation in both the survey and the results rollout discussion with your leader are important to help all of us create an engaging work environment that supports growing ourselves as highlighted in our strategic plan.

The survey will be administered again by our partner, Studer Education. Use of a third-party is to maintain absolute confidence in the confidentiality of your participation and responses. Over the next month, you can expect several communications from your executive leader and me introducing you to the survey; there are also several opportunities for you to engage in campus information session Q&As. I encourage you to make time to review the communication and participate in the Q&A sessions should you have questions or want to learn more.

The real power of the Employee Engagement Survey lies in your participation and feedback. People. Purpose. Action. Growing ourselves to grow others!
