"The College Employee Satisfaction Survey gave us a reasonably priced, easy-to-administer, college- focused instrument and allowed us to add enough institution-specific questions to satisfy our research needs. As a result we have involved faculty and staff much more fully in the planning process, significantly increased all employees' wages, and created a faculty promotion system."
