HR Employee Engagement Survey Results

Thank you to all who completed this year’s employee engagement survey.  We had a great participation rate with 2,838 completed responses, representing about 59 percent of the total surveyed population.

The employee survey measured five factors that impact employee commitment:

  • Satisfaction with development
  • Satisfaction with pay
  • Satisfaction with socialization
  • Job satisfaction
  • Trust

Job satisfaction and trust are the key factors in maintaining and raising employee commitment, specifically effective commitment. Development, socialization and pay are three factors that influence job satisfaction and trust.

Strategies and tactics that address employee needs in these three factors will have an indirect but discernible impact on employee commitment level.  This valuable information aids the University of Utah in continuing its status as an employer of choice and a great place to work.

This year’s survey results are very favorable and indicate that the university is headed in the right direction. The university increased in all five areas measured, with trust being the most improved.

The results of the survey and definitions of the factors can be found here.

NOTE: University of Utah Health employees did NOT take part in this survey. Separate surveys, tailored to those employees were distributed by U of U Hospitals and Clinics and U of U Academics.
