Employee engagement survey

ASU is interested in feedback and input from the employee community.

An online survey was administered between Dec. 5, 2022, and Jan. 3, 2023, by Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., a global insurance, risk management and consulting services organization. 

Gallagher’s survey team performs an array of advanced analyses as part of their consultation. The survey revealed opportunities in drivers of retention and engagement based on which items scored the lowest percentage of favorable ratings.

    • Approximately 59% response rate.
  • Out of 4,364 faculty invited to participate, 2,010 responded.
    • Approximately 46% response rate.
