If you were unable to join Vice President Kathy Brown and Dr. Brandon Sullivan on April 13 for the Campus Converesation, "2014 Employee Engagement," is available as a WebEx or PowerPoint presentation. Vice President Brown and Dr. Sullivan provided an overview of 2014 responses for the entire University, compared year-to-year results, and supplied context on the data and situations that may be shaping results.
E2 Employee Engagement supports the University's commitment to meet its academic and research mission by creating workplaces that energize, empower, and enhance faculty and staff. Engagement profoundly shapes both the quality of the faculty and staff experience, as well as workplace outcomes. It impacts recruiting, retaining, and developing top talent, as well as collaboration and innovation. For individuals, it affects both resilience and well being.
The University of Minnesota uses a unique model to measure engagement of faculty and staff on all campuses:
The University's employee engagement program received the Midwest Region Excellence in Human Resource Practices Award from the College and University Professionals Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) in 2014.
The engagement program was specifically recognized for improving the quality of programs through effective human resource administrative practices, creative application of human resource principles, and strong leadership.
