Upon sharing the results of the Workplace Experiences Survey 2014 (WES), we received feedback from the Board of Governors requesting that we also give student employees the opportunity to comment on their work experience at UBC. As a result, Human Resources and VP Students are collaborating on a pilot project surveying the opinions of undergraduate students on the Vancouver campus.
The goal of the survey is to gather information on how student employees experience the workplace. Information gathered is intended to improve the workplace experience of student employees and complement data collected in WES. Because this is a pilot project, the findings will be shared with a smaller audience of administrative and academic leaders, actions arising are to-be-determined, and consideration of future surveys is out-of-scope.
The regular Undergraduate Experience Survey went live on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016. The Survey will include a section on the experiences of student employees, asking questions that resemble those asked in WES.
If you have student employees in your area, please take note that we are asking questions about their experience.
