Employee Experiences Survey window closes soon

Only a few days remain for faculty and staff to share their views on organizational culture at the university through the Employee Experiences Survey. Scheduled to wrap up on Friday, May 13, the survey will help Queen’s developed a deeper understanding of employees’ current opinions on and experiences in their workplace.

So far, more than 44 per cent of employees have submitted survey responses — all of which will help toward establishing benchmarks to assist the university with building responsive and supportive programming to address employees’ needs. The results will also provide a benchmark to measure progress with respect to strengthening organizational culture, employee wellbeing, and a shared sense of belonging. This work aligns with one of the six primary institutional goals set out in the new Queen’s Strategy.

To encourage high levels of participation, Queen’s has been offering random prize draws for respondents—six who were selected and have received Kingston Downtown Dollars so far. More prizes are still available and, should the response rate exceed 50 per cent by the time the survey closes, an employee summer social will be organized.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to check their work email accounts for an email containing the survey link. It should take roughly 25 minutes to complete, and more information can be found on the Employee Experiences Survey webpage.
