April 9, 2014

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

On April 28, you will receive a message from Gallup to participate in the third UCSF Staff Engagement Survey, which will be administered April 28 through May 16. UCSF leadership strives to build a work environment that supports staff engagement, one that is conducive to achieving our collective mission of advancing health worldwide. Gallup, known nationally for its excellence in data-driven research, will administer the 2014 survey.

One of the primary ways we gauge our success in building a supportive work environment is by periodically gathering the opinions of our staff. The Staff Engagement Survey provides staff members with an opportunity to express their voices candidly and confidentially. The 2013 survey results showed progress on staff engagement, and units across the campus and medical center have created and implemented quality action plans to continue this improvement. The 2014 Staff Engagement Survey will provide greater insight into the impact of these efforts, and help us plan future engagement activities that contribute to making UCSF a great place to work.

The survey should take 5 to 10 minutes to complete, and Gallup will hold your responses in complete confidence. Responses will be reported anonymously without reference to identity of any respondents. We will provide an assessment of outcomes of the 2014 survey once it is closed and analysis of results completed.

Please take time to reflect on your employment experience at UCSF and share your feedback through this important survey.
