What

UNC Wilmington is participating in the UNC System Employee Engagement Survey, a five-year projected developed to support the UNC Strategic Plan. It is a regularly scheduled survey on workplace satisfaction that took place in 2018 and will be repeated every two years at all UNC institutions as part of the UNC System Strategic Plan.

The survey, which is administered to all permanent faculty and staff, will create a comprehensive, longitudinal view of faculty and staff engagement at the various institutions and across the System.

The survey is being administered through an outside vendor, ModernThink. ModernThink is the only entity that can access or view raw survey data and individual responses.The system has contracted with ModernThink, an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in higher education climate assessment, to administer the survey.

Why

Honest feedback matters. The surveys and their results will allow UNC Wilmington and system leaders to recognize successes and understand concerns that influence workplace culture. Among the topics explored are collaboration, communication, supervision, workplace culture, and benefits. The survey results may also assist the UNC System in advocating for improvements to human resources policies at the statewide level that are generally beyond the University’s institutional control. More information is available on the UNC System website

When

The 2020 survey launched on February 4, 2020 and will run through 11:59pm February 25, 2020. The survey takes about 20-25 minutes to complete on average. Faculty and staff can take the survey either on work time or off work time using a laptop or mobile device. (Note: If you decide to complete the survey outside your regular work schedule, then you will not be paid for that time.)
