Staff Engagement Survey Results 2015
The Council of UC Staff Assemblies (CUCSA), with the help of OP-HR and Towers-Watson, conducted an engagement survey of non-represented staff in April 2015. Central Human Resources have been working with representatives from Berkeley’s Staff Assembly (BSA) on synthesizing the highlights from the survey which can be accessed at: https://youtu.be/OcTe4ES-Ljw
The results are a snapshot of the reactions from a random sample of over 2000 of our non-represented staff to 37 questions about subjects ranging from communication and working relationships, to career development and performance management.
Overall, the results provide great feedback on progress we have made as well as opportunities for improving staff engagement. Performance-based pay is one of your top priorities and you were pretty vocal about the need for managers to step up to the plate by rewarding high performance and dealing with underperformance!
In fact, it was due in part to that feedback that President Napolitano required all locations to move to merit based pay by FY17.
