Staff Satisfaction

Staff Satisfaction Survey                                                    

The Dearborn Campus Senior Leadership Team was looking for a way to analyze staff satisfaction levels. Discussion resulted with the Human Resources department developing a confidential survey that assesses staff perceptions of key satisfaction metrics, supervisor effectiveness, and the University organizational competencies. 

To find out more about the Staff Satisfaction Survey, and to view the results from the previous year, visit our Staff Satisfaction Page.
