Staff Engagement

The University of California understands the strong link between “engaged” or motivated employees and organizational success. Engaged employees are committed to quality and customer service. Engaged employees will find ways to overcome obstacles. Engaged employees are strong advocates for their organization and are willing to take on new challenges. Sustaining and increasing staff engagement locally and systemwide is critical to moving our collective and various campus initiatives and priorities forward successfully.

Since 2012, Systemwide Employee Relations in the Office of Systemwide Human Resources has jointly sponsored with the Council of University of California Staff Assemblies its own employee workforce engagement pulse-survey of policy covered staff. These surveys provide valuable insight into employee perceptions about working at each location and for the University of California. In 2017, questions were added in two new categories - Wellness and Diversity & Inclusion. For survey results at your location, contact your local Human Resource office or Staff Assembly.
