The Great Colleges to Work For employee campus climate survey for faculty, staff and adminstrators hit University inboxes today. If you did not receive it, please call ModernThink’s help desk at 888.684.4658. The survey closes at midnight on Sunday, March 17.
Each MSU Denver employee should have received an email invitation from the management consulting firm ModernThink to participate in the survey. Once you click on the survey link, you will go directly to ModernThink’s website. You will be asked to enter a username and password, which will be provided in the email invitation sent to you directly by ModernThink.
The online survey should take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. If you are unable to complete the survey after you begin, you can save your responses and access them later. Responses are confidential.
The purpose of the campus climate survey is to take employees’ pulse on issues such as professional development, leadership, diversity, institutional pride, communication and collaboration, job satisfaction and more.
The survey consists of 80 statements that employees will respond to using a five-point agreement scale (Strongly Agree, Agree, Sometimes Agree/Sometimes Disagree, Disagree, Strongly Disagree). Additionally, there is a Not Applicable response option. The survey also includes a 16-item benefits satisfaction component, four open-ended questions and several demographic questions at the end.
You may take the survey at any time from work or from home, on any computer with Internet access. Employees taking the survey can use the same workstation, as long as each person properly logs on and off the computer.
ModernThink is the research partner for the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Great Colleges to Work For program. Three years ago, the Great Colleges to Work For survey at MSU Denver garnered a 43 percent participation rate —18 percent over the norm – and led to a number of initiatives, including, the Ombuds Office, a new performance evaluation tool and supervisory training.
Results of the 2013 survey are expected in July.
