Employee Engagement Survey

Welcome to the Employee Engagement Survey Website.

Thank you to all employees who completed the first-ever employee engagement survey. 

The 2022 Employee Engagement Survey results have provided us with a more accurate picture of the employee experiences at the University of Windsor. They highlight areas of strength and opportunities to enhance our workplace culture and the employee experience.  

We are committed to following through on the opportunities emerging from the survey results as these are fundamental to improving the way we work together to create a work environment that we can all enjoy and contribute to the University's success.


2022 Employee Engagement Survey Results

Employee Engagement is about creating the conditions in the work environment that enable employees to do their best every day and that motivates employees to actively contribute to the success of the organization.

It is about:

  • Finding personal meaning and motivation in one’s work/role.
  • Feeling energized about the future of the organization and motivated to contribute to its success.
  • Being given a voice and having an opportunity to shape the organization’s future.
  • Feeling supported, included, trusted, empowered, and recognized
