My Voice at IU is a continuous process at Indiana University to increase staff employee engagement and ensure IU remains a workplace of choice.

By adopting a continuous process of assessing and enhancing engagement, IU can better understand the needs of its employees, what IU is doing well, and where there are opportunities to improve. The process is simple: Staff and leaders use the results of the My Voice at IU Staff Engagement Surveys to inspire open discussion at the department and unit level, where employees can create simple action plans to address the topics that matter most to them. Follow-up surveys allow teams to assess their efforts, continue building on positives, or address new opportunities. The process empowers employees to make their workplace better for themselves and enhance their engagement.

Initiative Objectives:

  • Collect feedback from staff employees on how they feel about working at IU: whether they feel valued, if they feel their contributions matter, and the level of pride in their work.
  • Empower the organization, leadership, and teams to determine ways to improve the employment experience at IU.
  • Provide helpful change management tools, resources, and guidance to leadership, managers, and teams to act upon results and improve work experiences.
  • Help establish IU as a best place to work.
