Special Edition Management Update -- March 29, 2016

Add Your Voice! Share Your Experience at Kent State and Encourage Others 

Take the University Climate Survey now to add your voice and share your experiences! 

Encourage staff members to take the climate survey by talking personally with them and considering the following:

  • Email individuals urging their participation and the importance of the climate survey. A two-minute video can be viewed as well.
  • Talk up the climate survey at every meeting you attend. Consider reducing meeting times to encourage individuals to complete the survey.
  • Proactively ask staff about taking time away from job duties to complete the survey; share a rotation in your working group so that everyone can have time to complete the survey. Everyone should be permitted to complete the survey, while working, on the clock.
  • Challenge everyone to encourage 10 others to take the survey.

The survey is open until Tuesday, April 5. Faculty and staff who complete the survey can opt to enter to win a weekend getaway as a thank-you gift.

Any personal steps you can take to encourage participation will be appreciated! As you all know, the information we collect will be much stronger with more responses. Shay Little and Kathy Wilson, co-chairs of the climate survey steering committee, are appreciative of any efforts you can take to encourage participation. More information is available at www.kent.edu/voices.

If you have any questions, you can contact Shay Little at 330-672-4050 or sdlittle@kent.edu or Kathy Wilson at 330-672-1093 or kwilson3@kent.edu

Thank you for your help!

Willis Walker,

Interim Vice President for Human Resources
