Community Survey allows all employees’ voices to be heard

The VUMC Community Survey, an employee satisfaction assessment poll, will be conducted March 19 through April 6.

To take the survey online, go to

The VUMC leadership team and individual supervisors at the Medical Center use the survey findings to make changes and shape new programs to boost satisfaction and job retention.

The goal for this year's survey is 90 percent participation by VUMC staff and faculty.

As always, the identity of individual respondents is kept strictly confidential by the survey vendor.

Staff and faculty also have the option of filling out the survey online or on paper. Watch your mailbox and your e-mail for information on how to participate in the survey.

Employee satisfaction and retention are central to elevate. The Medical Center leadership team has decided to run surveys every year instead of every other year; the rest of the university is going to stick with surveys every other year. Annual surveys will be useful for job performance evaluations of VUMC supervisors.
