University and academic staff: Help UW–Madison improve our work environment

On April 12, all eligible staff employees received an e-mail link to a survey intended to assess staff perceptions of the work environment on campus. The survey is an opportunity for staff to share their university work experiences with university leaders.  The survey is confidential.  Supervisors and university leaders will never see answers connected to a particular individual.

The survey is available in Chinese, English, Hmong, Nepali, Spanish, and Tibetan.  Paper surveys are also available for all employees who don’t use computers regularly for their jobs or do not feel comfortable completing the survey electronically.  There will be help sessions to provide employees with the time and place to complete the paper survey.  The multilingual help sessions will be facilitated by Cultural Linguistic Services and are offered during daytime and late-night work hours.  Supervisors are expected to allow employees to complete the survey during work time while in pay status. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. Responses must be submitted by May 3 at 11:59pm.

Faculty were invited to complete the WISELI Study of Faculty Worklife survey in March.
