Human Resources publishes results of Employee Engagement Survey
Today (July 10), Texas Tech Human Resources unveiled a new webpage to communicate the results of the employee engagement survey. HR conducted the survey this past spring, and 1331 staff members participated (about 32% of those eligible).
"We were fortunate to receive a high response rate on this survey that demonstrated the commitment of our workforce," said Justin Clark, managing director of Human Resources.
The webpage includes a graphic that highlights the four highest rated responses as well as the four largest areas for improvement. It also identifies questions with a high variation in the responses that Human Resources considers potential "hot spots."
"We were excited to learn that, as a whole, our employees are passionate about educating students," Clark said. "Further, our employees are proud of the work they do, are loyal to their departments and feel motivated to contribute their best efforts."
Areas for improvement identified in the report, Clark said, include providing managers and administrators with more tools to care for employees.
"Our employees told us that they care about professional development and feel like they could use more of it," he said. "They also told us that there is an opportunity for them to become more empowered in doing their jobs."
Human Resources compiled the results of all 27 survey questions into a complete report. The report includes information on what Human Resources will do with the data collected.
Also on the webpage is an area for employees to leave feedback anonymously regarding the survey results and, specifically, the opportunities for improvement.
"Texas Tech is a great place to work," Clark said. "And with our employees' help and input, we can work to make it even better."
During the next several months, Human Resources will reach out to individual departments to identify specific strengths and opportunities for development. Also, Human Resources will release a summary of the data for each division to the vice presidents.
