Last call: Today is the last day to take the 2019 Employee Engagement Survey!

April 12, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees

Today is the final day to take the 2019 Employee Engagement Survey. In just about 10 minutes, you can make your voice heard and help impact the organization’s employee culture.

Vital Voices, Michigan Medicine’s employee engagement survey, gives staff the opportunity to share their opinion on key issues including communication, teamwork, recognition and more.

Here’s what you need to know in order to provide your input:

Am I eligible to take the survey?

If you are a full- or part-time staff member who began work on or before Jan. 4, 2019, then you are eligible! Additionally, you can take it if you are a temporary employee who began work on or before Jan. 4, 2019 and you are not contracted through an outside company.

How do I access the survey?

You can access the online survey by clicking the generic link sent to your work email address from Michigan Medicine Engagement Survey. You can also access the survey by clicking here. Please note that a password is required to participate in the survey because all employees have access to the survey using the same generic link and each individual can only take the survey once.

How do I know what my password is?

Your password is your 8-digit UMID number and the last two digits of your birth year.

Example: If your UMID number is 12345678 and your birth year is 1979, your password will be 1234567879.

Please Note: If your UMID begins with any 0s, please do not include the leading 0s in your password.

Employees with dual appointments should talk to their supervisor or culture coach for additional information to ensure their feedback is reported accurately and to the appropriate department.

How long will the survey take to complete?

The survey should only take about 10 minutes to complete. Employees may also start the survey and finish it later. However, you are encouraged to complete the survey in one sitting if possible. To ensure your responses are saved, be sure to click the “Next” button at the bottom of each page.

Will my responses remain confidential even though I’m required to use a password?

Absolutely. Logging on with a password simply ensures users only complete the survey once. Unique participant information, including whether or not individual team members have taken the survey, is retained by the vendor — guaranteeing confidentiality — and no one at Michigan Medicine will know whether an individual employee participated in the survey or not or will ever see responses tied back to an individual employee.

Will I be able to provide comments?

Yes. However, please note that comments will not be scrubbed for self-identifying information, therefore comments will be reported verbatim. Employees can skip the comment questions if they are not comfortable with their feedback being reported as is.

How will my feedback be used?

The results will help Michigan Medicine discover its strengths and make improvements in the areas of operation that most matter to you. It will ensure that the organization continues moving in a positive direction.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your supervisor or culture coach.

Thank you for taking the 2019 Employee Engagement Survey. Your voice is vital!
