UF survey seeks staff opinions

OpinionsThis article was originally published in the March 2005 issue of CLASnotes.

From March 25 until April 15, university TEAMS and USPS employees will have a chance to voice their opinions about the UF work environment by completing the Staff Opinion Survey. President Bernie Machen commissioned the survey to learn how staff rate the university work environment, and he hopes the confidential survey will assist the university in identifying two or three priority areas that will become the focus of campus-wide discussion and action for improvement.

International Survey Research (ISR), the private firm used to conduct the Faculty Opinion Survey last year, developed the staff survey based on input from the Administrative and Professional Assembly (APA) Staff Survey Task Force and insights gained from staff focus groups. ISR has customized survey questions to reflect specific campus issues involving benefits, recognition and reward, career development, working relationships, communication, resources and efficiency and quality of life.

More than 8,200 full-time and part-time TEAMS and USPS employees will receive the paper survey on March 25, either directly delivered in a sealed envelope via campus mail or through bulk delivery to employment units.

Staff will have until April 15 to anonymously complete the survey and drop it in campus mail for delivery to a PO Box at UF Document Services. The completed surveys will be forwarded to ISR for tabulation and reporting. Individual responses to the survey will remain completely confidential, but reports of overall results will be made available for public review in early June.
