Initially planned for the fall of 2021, the third My Voice at IU Staff Engagement Survey has been rescheduled for early 2022.

“A successful and safe fall semester for students, staff and faculty is our highest priority,” said Laura Kress, interim vice president for IU Human Resources. “We acknowledge that a successful return to mostly normal operations will require time, effort and flexibility from all of us. Rescheduling the survey will help staff, leaders and HR professionals focus their efforts on supporting the needs of their work units and working together to ensure a successful fall semester.”

About the survey

The confidential survey collects feedback from staff about how they feel about working at IU: whether they feel valued, whether they feel their contributions matter and the level of pride they have in their work. Survey results help IU better understand the needs of its employees, what the university is doing well and where opportunities to improve exist. Staff discuss their unit-level results and create plans for continual improvement, empowering them to take ownership and make changes that matter to them.

While the COVID-19 pandemic may have impacted many units’ engagement projects, IU remains committed to collecting staff feedback about their experience and continually enhancing staff engagement, Kress said.

“The survey is one part of the larger engagement process that helps IU focus on meeting the needs of IU employees while improving IU as a workplace,” she said. “Enhancing engagement is a continuous cycle of communication and making changes — small or large — that improve our work experience.”
