In Brief: Staff, Faculty Surveys Seek Feedback on Workplace Culture, Impact Alumni Make

Staff Climate and Engagement Survey Deadline Extended to Dec. 22

The University’s first Staff Engagement and Climate Survey is still open until Dec. 22 for those who have not yet completed it. Email reminders have been sent with a unique link to the Qualtrics-administered survey.

All survey participants are entered to win great prizes that include:

  • Four tickets to the Jan. 13 Pitt vs. Georgia Tech men’s basketball game
  • Four tickets to the Jan. 14 Pitt vs. Georgia Tech women’s basketball game
  • A one-night stay at the Oakland Residence Inn

The survey aims to assess the current state of Pitt’s employment culture from the eyes of staff members. Some aspects of the environment that affect the work culture include morale, trust, leadership, diversity and inclusion, teamwork, rewards, recognition, benefits and compensation and conflict resolution. This survey will provide the University with a baseline measurement, supported by data, of how Pitt’s staff members view their working environment.

Faculty, Staff Alumni Asked to Participate in Impact Survey

Pitt alumni change the world. Let us count the ways.

A team from the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business is going beyond traditional measures of alumni impact to quantify the many ways Pitt graduates — including those who are also faculty and staff members — make a difference in the world.

Traditional gauges — such as board service, jobs created or companies launched — are important, but economic indicators alone don’t tell the whole story, especially in a multi-faceted institution like Pitt.  A new metric, “lives touched,” is part of a first-of-its-kind alumni survey that feeds a broader effort to measure the University’s social, political, intellectual, cultural and economic impact.

The survey was sent Dec. 1 to all individuals with an email address in Pitt’s alumni database. If you’re among the thousands of Pitt employees with a Pitt degree, be sure your impact is counted. Alumni responses are due by Jan. 7, 2018. Alumni who did not receive a survey link may request one by emailing
