UT System Updates: Full Engagement Survey Results

Category: Features

Across the University of Tennessee System, we want to ensure that UT is a great place to work. In fall 2021, McLean & Company, an independent human resources research firm, administered an employee engagement survey to gather insights and feedback regarding the overall work environment at UT. The survey helped us establish an engagement baseline and will be continuously useful as UT strives to reach its greatest decade in history.

The survey gathered employees’ feelings of energy and purpose, diversity, satisfaction, benefits, culture, employee empowerment, learning and development, work-life balance and more.

77% are able to maintain a balance between their work and personal lives.

77% believe that their supervisor cares about them as a person.

82% state that they really like the people they work with.

87% believe in the University of Tennessee’s overall mission, vision and values in the system-level strategic plan.

78% are aware of the University of Tennessee’s stated values.

88% believe that the University of Tennessee has a bright future.


The results of the employee engagement survey will be used to steer employee benefits and culture decisions going forward. To view the full engagement survey in its entirety visit hr.tennessee.edu/yourvoice/.
