Employee Engagement Survey


ECSU will continue to participate in the UNC System Employee Engagement Survey, a five-year project developed to support the UNC Strategic Plan. The system has 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 will be sent to all permanent employees at ECSU.

The 2022 survey will open Monday, March 28. and close on Monday, April  11. Initial results are expected in summer 2022 and will be shared with the ECSU community. 

Employees will receive an email directly from ModernThink. The email will contain 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 are asked to give employees the opportunity  to complete the survey during their work schedules, which can be accessed from any device with internet access.

Survey participation is voluntary, and answers are completely confidential. Only ModernThink  has access to individual responses. Read more from ModernThink.
