Introduction to the Employee Engagement Survey – February 3, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

Since my arrival at Georgia Southern, I have been committed to engaging us in a renewed focus on student success and performance excellence and 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 will be gathering your input annually through an Employee Engagement survey. The purpose of the survey is to gain feedback from all full-time employees about their work environment, what is working well and where there may be opportunities for improvement. Following the survey, leaders will use summary-level feedback to identify the highest priority areas and will engage employees in discussions about actions to take that improve those areas. Our goal is to create clear roadmaps to success for all employees, departments, and the institution.

Your participation in both the survey and the discussions that will follow 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 March 1-15 by Studer Education. To maintain absolute assurance in the confidentiality of your participation and responses, we are using this third-party administrator. 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 informational sessions. I encourage you to make time to review the communication and participate in the informational 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! Look for detailed information on the process and timeline from your divisional leader in the coming days.
