Changing the Culture... Transforming the Conversation


STAFF HAVE SPOKEN: 77% SURVEY PARTICIPATION! From November 12 through November 30 staff once again had the chance to let their voices be heard by providing valuable feedback on the work culture at Yale via the 2012 Workplace Survey.

Read about the results of the 2012 Workplace Survey and a conversation with Mike Peel, vice president for human resources and administration.

Thanks to all of you who took the 2012 Workplace Survey, which closed at midnight on November 30! Not only have you provided the University with valuable feedback about the work culture here at Yale, but you have also helped the University almost achieve its participation goal of 80%.

The University is committed to making Yale a great place to work. In order to do this, staff feedback is critical. The Workplace Survey provides the University with information on commitment, decision making, development, diversity, innovation, leadership, performance management, productivity, rewards and teamwork.

Survey Goals

  1. Discover what workplace issues for improvement are most important to Yale staff members.
  2. Increase survey participation to 80 percent (or higher).
  3. Each department develops and implements action plans for areas identified for improvement within the unit.

The action plans, based on the survey findings and results, are reviewed regularly to ensure that the plans address the areas identified for improvement by the survey and reflect staff needs.
