2024 UNC System Employee Engagement Survey underway

Tuesday, April 2, 2024

UNC Charlotte is participating in the UNC System-wide Employee Engagement Survey, which launched Monday, March 25. All permanent, full-time employees at the University received the survey from ModernThink LLC, an independent research and consulting firm that specializes in higher education climate assessment. All are encouraged to participate. 

This year’s request is the fourth iteration of this system-wide employee engagement survey project. The 2024 survey is a shortened version of the full survey administered in 2018 and 2020, but slightly longer than the "pulse" survey conducted in 2022. 
ModernThink sent an email directly to employees with additional details and information about how to log on. Each employee should have received a unique link that only they can use to participate in the survey. ModernThink will send an additional reminder to those who have not yet responded with the employee-specific links. 

Employees are encouraged to make time in their workdays to share their honest feedback — the survey will take around 10 minutes to complete. All responses are confidential and participation is voluntary. 

Why is UNC Charlotte participating in the survey?

The University wants to measure workplace engagement. Studies have shown that the more engaged an employee is at their workplace, the more satisfied the employee is and the more productive the work unit is.

This is also one of the ways the System can obtain useful system-wide quantitative information about how faculty and staff feel about their workplace. The engagement survey collects data from both faculty and staff and will help the University identify areas of strength at each institution and areas that need improvement. 

Some UNC institutions have done similar surveys in the past, but this is the only survey to be conducted system-wide. It provides a common dataset for the entire UNC System.

More information about the survey can be found on the HR website, and questions may be directed to Charleata Neal at cneal25@charlotte.edu
