Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce our 2017 UCSF-wide Staff Engagement Survey results. In February, I urged you to participate, and seventy percent of staff responded.

We have achieved an overall UCSF grand mean of 3.93, based on a five-point scale. This is an improvement of .07 points from the 2015 score and marks significant improvement since the first Gallup survey at UCSF in 2011. The steady progress can be seen below:

Dear Colleagues:

At UCSF, our mission of advancing health worldwide guides us. To help us deliver on this promise, we need a strong communications foundation.

To that end, UCSF is conducting a survey of faculty and staff to better understand our current communications environment – what’s working well and where we can make improvements. Our goal is that you feel informed about UCSF and that our communications are as timely, targeted and transparent as possible.

You will receive the communications survey via email soon from [email protected], and we ask that you take a few minutes to complete it by Monday, April 24. The survey is completely confidential and your response will be anonymous. It should take about 15 minutes to complete.

We seek your candid feedback, and the more responses we receive, the more informed our actions will be to improve in this area. This effort is part of a new university initiative, Great People, Great Place, in which we aim to make UCSF a best place to work, learn, teach and discover.

Thank you in advance for your valuable perspective. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Gil Lorenzo, project manager for Great People, Great Place.
