2019 Workplace Experiences Survey Pulse Results

2019 Workplace Experiences Survey Pulse Results

In November 2019, 3,283 faculty and staff participated in the UBC Workplace Experiences Survey Pulse.

The survey findings offer insights into areas that were identified as the top drivers of engagement in the 2017 WES, and that align with the priorities woven into Focus on People 2025: inclusion, leadership, professional growth, and wellbeing.

The results also inform the Focus on People 2025 metrics, which provides progress on making UBC an inspiring place to work.

The 2019 WES Pulse was one way to see progress since the 2017 WES. Read more about taking actions on the WES results.

Unit-level reports

A pulse survey report is generated for each unit with 10 or more responses. These reports feature comparisons between a unit’s pulse results and the 2017 WES results so that we can see how faculty and staff experiences have shifted in the last two years.

In early 2020, portfolio-level reports were shared with UBC Executive Leadership team, and unit-level reports were distributed to the respective senior HR leaders.
