CUCSA Survey Results Presentation
In June and July of 2012 the Council of UC Staff Assemblies (CUCSA) embarked on a project with the help of Office of the President and the consulting firm Towers Watson to survey non-represented employees regarding their engagement with UC. The UC-wide and Berkeley-specific results of that survey were presented on March 21. A video of the presentation can be viewed at: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/30176611
The Berkeley-specific results of the CUCSA-sponsored 2012 UC Staff Engagement Survey are available at: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByLXr7ESePgrMG5Oc005aGR2RDA/edit?usp=sha...
