The 2017 UK @ Work survey is your opportunity to provide feedback on making UK an even better place to work. The insights gleaned from this survey are critical to our continued efforts to address the needs of our faculty and staff. (UK HealthCare continues to administer its own employee survey each year.)

This survey allows you to provide feedback in several areas, including:

  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Career development
  • Stress and workload
  • Pay and rewards
  • Working relationships
  • University culture

Your answers are completely confidential. No one within the University will know how you responded. All responses are reported in aggregate of at least 10 or more respondents. 

Faculty and staff feedback has made a difference. This video shows just a few ways colleges and divisions have used their UK @ Work feedback to develop action plans:

Since the previous survey in spring 2015, the University has:

  • Provided managers and employees alike with enhanced guidelines and support for workplace flexibility. 
  • Increased engagement opportunities with leaders, including Conversation with the President and Chat with the Provost. 
  • Expanded our free Work + Life Connections counseling program with the addition of a mental health clinician. 
  • Begun offering financial well-being counseling. 
  • Provided subsidized Fitbits to help foster a culture of wellness. 
  • Avoided cost increases to the employee contribution for health insurance. 
  • Begun rolling out unconscious bias awareness training across the entire University and launched the Bias Incidence Response Team, to ensure we are a community where all feel secure and welcome. 
  • Supported our deans and vice presidents in implementing action plans based on your survey feedback in their respective colleges and divisions. 

If you have any questions about the survey, please email Employee Engagement Director Amberlee Fay at
