Employee Engagement Survey

2020 Engagement Survey logo

We asked. You answered. We are listening.

WCU faculty and staff will have the opportunity to participate in the UNC System Employee Engagement Survey, which is the second of a five-year project developed by the University of North Carolina system to help achieve the goals of the UNC System Strategic Plan. The survey also aligns with the goals of WCU’s strategic plan, 2020 Vision: Focusing on our Future. Like in 2018, the survey will be administered through an outside vendor, ModernThink, which has implemented similar studies for hundreds of colleges nationwide and for the Chronicle of Higher Education “Great Colleges to Work For” report. An overview of results from the 2018 survey may be accessed at the following link:  2018 UNC System Employee Engagement Survey - Summary of Results

 The data collected from the initial survey established baseline metrics and allow university leadership to build on success and address challenges. The survey results may also assist the UNC system in advocating for improvements to human resource policies at the state level that are generally beyond the university’s institutional control. The  last follow-up survey will be administered in 2022. 

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Cory Causby, WCU's Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources.
