Workplace Experiences Survey


The UBC Workplace Experiences Survey was offered in November 2017. Where are we now?

Action plans have been created at the university-wide, portfolio and local levels.

  • The university-wide results from the survey indicated a number of areas that have the potential to create more engaging workplace experiences. The university Executive identified some opportunities related to senior leadership as part of their action plan, and VPs have also developed action plans for their portfolios.
  • At the portfolio and local level, faculties and departments were encouraged and supported to share and reflect on their unit-level survey results, and select an area of opportunity specific to their local context. Some common themes include professional growth, health and wellbeing, and leadership development. Faculties and departments were invited to co-create, share, and discuss their actions plans with faculty and staff.
