Empowering employees

The state of employee engagement and retention in higher education

Faculty and staff have the potential to make or break the student experience. But academic talent leaders face an uphill battle. According to a recent survey, 52 percent of faculty members were not engaged in their work, and an additional 14 percent were actively disengaged. Only 34 percent reported feeling engaged at their jobs[1].

So what can institutions do to support faculty and staff and help keep them involved and passionate? In this white paper, we collaborated with Cornerstone OnDemand and the Human Capital Media Research and Advisory Group to establish a set of best practices for hiring and keeping academic employees. Download the white paper for more details on why:

  • Student success depends on both faculty and staff engagement
  • Measurement is key to successful employee engagement
  • Employee engagement and retention are financially beneficial to institutions
“Engaged employees are happy employees and happy employees are more customer focused and willing to help. That has a huge impact on student success.”
