Employee Engagement Survey

NC State is giving faculty and staff the opportunity to participate in an employee engagement survey to enhance our ongoing efforts to create the best workplace possible. The survey is anonymous and completely confidential. It will be conducted between Jan. 29 and Feb. 12.
Update: The deadline for completing the UNC System Employee Engagement Survey has been extended to Monday, Feb. 19

The survey is part of a five-year project developed by the University of North Carolina system to help achieve the goals of the UNC strategic plan. It also aligns with the goals of the NC State strategic plan, Pathway to the Future.

The data we collect will establish baseline metrics and allow university leadership to build on success and address challenges. The survey results may also assist the UNC system in advocating for improvements to human resource policies at the statewide level that are generally beyond the university’s institutional control.

The employee engagement survey will be conducted by ModernThink, an independent management consulting firm. ModernThink is working with Human Resources and the Office of Institutional Research and Planning to administer the survey to NC State faculty and staff.

More information about the survey will be posted to this website and distributed by email in the coming weeks.

UPDATE: The Employee Engagement Survey is live as of Monday, January 29, 2018.  Here is some important information about accessing the survey:

  • Most employees are being asked to complete the survey online.  These employees should have received an email from ModernThink providing the URL for the survey, along with a unique ID and password needed to access it.  If you did not receive this email, please check your Spam folder.
  • Employees working in jobs classified as skilled crafts, service or maintenance, however, have been sent a paper copy of the survey to their campus mail box.  The questionnaire is in a large, personally addressed envelope that also includes an envelope for you to place your completed survey, seal, and return via campus mail to the Office of Institutional Research. These employees were not sent an email with information to access the survey online.  If you are working in a skilled crafts, service or maintenance job please check your campus box for your survey packet.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Nancy Whelchel, NC State’s director of survey research, at nancy_whelchel@ncsu.edu.
