Have your say: One week remains in Employee Climate Survey

With one week remaining in NC’s Employee Climate Survey, just over 46 percent of faculty and staff have responded, according to survey administrator Metrics@Work.

The current numbers fall well below the final participation rate for the 2011 Employee Climate Survey, which exceeded 70 percent. There is a strong link between the level of participation and the quality and the usefulness of the survey results. The information generated by the Employee Climate Survey is important – it engages employees, and generates valuable feedback that drives positive change and new initiatives at NC. It’s a key factor in maintaining a healthy organization that is committed to continuous improvement. For all faculty and staff – including the many new employees who have joined the College since the last Employee Climate Survey in 2011 — it’s an opportunity to provide thoughts and impressions about the workplace experience.

The survey is online, and administered by Metrics@Work, a local firm with expertise in employee engagement and organizational measurement. The survey period began on Feb. 18 and runs until March 7.

All responses to the Employee Climate Survey will remain confidential. Those who complete the survey, do so through an outside party in complete confidence. The College does not have access to the raw data or any report or information that would identify an individual.

If you did not receive an invitation email from Metrics@Work on February 18 with your username and password for the survey, please email climatesurvey@niagaracollege.ca (or CLIMATESURVEY in Groupwise) to determine whether you are on the list of eligible employees. All full-time employees, sessional/partial load faculty and regular part-time support and administrative staff are eligible to complete the survey.

Draws will also take place each Friday throughout the survey period. For a list of this week’s winners, click here.
