Starting today, staff in all university divisions except APL will receive an email asking them to contribute to a culture of engagement at JHU by completing the Gallup survey. JHU faculty will not complete the Gallup survey this year. The 2018 survey includes Gallup's 12 core questions and several additional questions chosen by the university, including ones about diversity and inclusion within the organization.
The information gathered helps the university understand where to focus its efforts and how to give people what they need to be productive, motivated, and committed to shared goals.
Gallup will conduct the survey confidentially, and information will be reported back to managers with no identifying information about the respondents. If fewer than five employees in a given area respond to the survey, their responses will be grouped with a larger unit to which they belong (such as an overall department) in order to protect the employees' identities. Managers will then be asked to create action plans around the issues of greatest importance in their area, with assistance from human resources colleagues.
Information about the survey questions, details about confidentiality, and tools for managers are on the Employee Engagement page of the Senior VP for Finance and Administration website.
