Designed exclusively for colleges and universities
Unlike other employee surveys, the College Employee Satisfaction Survey addresses areas specific to working on college campuses. Questions on interdepartmental communication, campus mission, enrollment, and decision making reveal attitudes on issues critical to higher education. The reports for two-year community and technical colleges and four-year private institutions include national norms.
The College Employee Satisfaction Survey is appropriate for every level of college employee: administrators, campus staff, and faculty members.
"The College Employee Satisfaction Survey helped us pinpoint issues we can address and see how to prioritize them. In the places we identified concerns, we have been able to really dig in to find pieces where we can effect change."
