2017 Staff Engagement Survey reminder

The UC ANR Staff Assembly Council encourages UC ANR staff to complete the Staff Engagement Survey if they received it from Willis Towers Watson. The survey didn't go to every single staff member. In order to reduce cost, surveys were randomly sent to 64 percent of non-represented staff. It's particularly important to complete the survey if it came to you.

The Office of the President keeps track of the number of surveys that are filled out, so the UC ANR Staff Assembly is in a friendly competition with Staff Assemblies throughout UC to see who has the highest rate of return. In 2015, the last time the survey was conducted, UC ANR tied for first place with UC San Francisco with a return rate of 56 percent. We want to be on top again this year!

As of today, UC ANR has 37 percent of surveys completed. UC Santa Barbara is at 38 percent and UC Santa Cruz at 39 percent. We need a big showing before the survey closes on June 2.

Please search your inbox for an email from Willis Towers Watson then take a few minutes to complete the survey.

If you have questions or comments about the survey or Staff Assembly, please post them on the UC ANR Staff Assembly website.

Sincerely,

UC ANR Staff Assembly Council

Staff merit-based salary program for 2017-18

I am pleased to announce the University will implement a merit-based salary increase program for policy-covered (nonrepresented) staff employees for the 2017-18 fiscal year. For ANR staff employees, the salary increase program will be effective July 1, 2017, for monthly paid employees and June 18, 2017, for biweekly paid employees. 

Continuing the 2016-17 program, staff salary increases again will be related to the annual staff performance appraisal process.  This is part of the ongoing UC-wide effort to move toward consistent delivery of pay programs that reward individuals for their performance and contribution. 

Academic appointees can expect to receive information about this year's academic salary program in the coming weeks.

General questions about staff performance appraisals and the staff salary program can be directed to John Fox, Human Resources executive director, at jsafox@ucanr.edu.

Sincerely,

Glenda Humiston
Vice President
