Retention and Job Security

Job Security Index

The job security index is based on responses to questions that assessed staff's perceptions about the future of their jobs at the University, and if they consider it to be "unpredictable, uncertain, almost guaranteed, etc."

Overall, staff reported moderately low levels of job security across all four campuses and all job classifications, and that these perceptions remained relatively similar across 2004 and 2006.
