Employee Engagement Survey

Employee Engagement Survey


ECSU participated in the UNC System Employee Engagement Survey, a five-year projected developed to support the UNC Strategic Plan. The system was contracted with ModernThink, an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in higher education climate assessment, to administer the survey. 


Honest feedback matters. The survey results allowed ECSU and system leaders to recognize successes and understand concerns that influence workplace culture. Among the topics explored were 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 in the UNC System's FAQ document.

The survey was sent to all permanant employees at ECSU.

The 2018 survey was open Monday, Jan. 29, and closed on Monday, Feb. 12. Initial results were expected in summer 2018 and will be shared with the ECSU community. 

Employees received an email directly from ModernThink. The email contained a link specific to the recipient, so employees should not forward their emails to colleaguesClick here for a preview of what the email looked like.

Supervisors should have allowed employees to make time in their work schedules to complete the survey, which can be accessed from any device with internet access.

Survey participation was voluntary, and answers were completely confidential. Only ModernThink  had access to individual responses. Read more from ModernThink.
