The results of a survey into how the changes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting employees are now available.
Recognizing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the personal and working lives of employees and wanting to hear from them how the University could better support them during this unprecedented time, the University conducted the COVID-19 Employee Pulse Check Survey.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the faculty, staff, and student employees who completed the survey,” says Rita LaCivita, vice-president, human resources. “The data analysis has highlighted a number of things that our employees have told us we are doing well and four key areas that we can build upon to better support them as we continue to respond to the pandemic and implement a safe and gradual return to campus activities.”
These key areas include: mental health and wellbeing, safety, communication, and engagement and supports.
Over the past few months, a summary of the survey results has been shared with the Board of Governors and Senate and the Return to Campus Faculty and Staff Working Groups have engaged in discussions to formulate recommendations to turn the survey results into action.
In the coming weeks, these recommendations will be presented to the Executive Leadership Team and implementation plans will then be developed. The campus may visit the COVID-19 Employee Pulse Check Survey website for a summary of the survey results. Implementation status updates will be posted on this site regularly.
