Stanford Staff Survey

Thank you for your participation

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2018 Staff Engagement Survey—more than 8,750 of you shared your voice and provided feedback on your experience working at Stanford. An overview of the university-wide results, including what the university is doing well and how we can improve, will be shared with all employees in early winter quarter. Schools and units will begin sharing their local results after the university-wide results are announced.

Engagement is our pride, energy, and optimism that fuels discretionary effort. Managing engagement helps build a better Stanford when we know what is expected of us and what we're working to accomplish (alignment) and effectively anticipate and respond to change (agility).

Why measure employee engagement?

Share your voice and how connected you feel to Stanford, and let us know how we can strengthen your Stanford employee experience. The purpose of the engagement survey is to: 

  • Highlight the workplace environment of our staff community
  • Empower staff to confidentially share their experience working at Stanford
  • Measure staff levels of engagement and drivers over time
  • Support university directives and initiatives

Who has access to the results?

To ensure confidentiality, the survey is administered by an independent culture and strategy organization. No one at Stanford has or will have access to your individual results. Results are reported to managers only for groups of five (5) or more employees, not on an individual basis. Read FAQ to see how we're protecting your response.
