2014 Employee Survey Results

The Employee Opinion Survey was conducted in the Fall of 2014 to gauge how Jackson College employees feel about their work and their workplace. This survey was designed to be taken anonymously in order to encourage employees to participate and to provide candid responses to the survey questions. In the process of analyzing the results of this survey the Workforce Focus Committee compared the results of employees who voluntarily identified themselves as Faculty, Administrators and Classified Technical Staff with the overall results which also included respondents who voluntarily identified themselves as Adjuncts as well as those who chose to remain anonymous. Both sets of results are provided here to encourage employees' engagement with each other about the Employee Opinion Survey. Any of the members of the Workforce Focus Committee will be happy to answer questions about the survey and these results, so please feel free to contact them. A list of these committee members can also be found on this web page.

Both of the results documents provided here contain three sections. The first section shows the average response for each survey question broken down by specific groups. The second section shows the average response for those survey questions which are comparable to survey questions asked in previous years. The third section contains a list of all the open-ended questions on the survey and the responses which have been categorized by the topic.
