My Voice at IU: Employee Engagement Survey

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.

What’s New

Past Participation was 70%

In October of 2019, more than 8,000 IU staff employees completed the most recent My Voice at IU Staff Employee Engagement Survey.


While COVID-19 may have derailed many action plans, IU has a unique opportunity to use the next survey to assess employee engagement after the university’s return to mostly normal operations.

Survey Returns this Spring

The next survey is scheduled for early 2022. This will allow staff and leaders time to adapt and support each other as they return to mostly normal operations in the fall of 2021.
