IIHR faculty and staff took part in the 2014 Working at Iowa survey, the fourth biannual survey conducted by the University of Iowa. This survey provides a snapshot of employee engagement by asking respondents about perceptions of their individual job, their unit, and the university as a whole. Each college received a report summarizing the results. IIHR’s survey results are now available online, as is the College of Engineering Report.

A total of 83.3 percent of IIHR faculty and staff responded to the survey, which reflects a good level of engagement within the institute and a substantial increase from the last survey. IIHR’s areas of strength include a good understanding of work expectations (Question 1, 92.3 percent agree), the respectful relationships between supervisors and faculty/staff (Question 6, 91.3 percent agree), a civil and respectful environment overall (Question 13, 92 percent agree), and a strong understanding of how the job fits into the overall mission of the University of Iowa (Question 16, 94.2 percent agree). If you have questions or comments about the IIHR Working at Iowa survey results, or ideas for follow-up actions, please contact Teresa Gaffey, IIHR’s department human resources administrator, or Jan Waterhouse, College of Engineering director of human resources.

The University of Iowa Report for the entire campus is also available for your review, and additional Working at Iowa information can be found on the University Human Resources-Working at Iowa webpage.

The university expects to repeat the Working at Iowa Survey in 2016.
