New survey will shape future of the Clinical Center

Clinical Center volunteers promoted the survey during a launch in the atrium to help spread the word.
The 2016 NIH Clinical Center Employee Survey was sent out to Clinical Center federal employees Feb. 1. Clinical Center volunteers promoted the survey during a launch in the atrium to help spread the word. Employees were able to take the survey with two workstation on wheels (WOWs) that were provided by the Department of Clinical Research Informatics.

All Clinical Center employees now have the opportunity to provide feedback to leadership about important issues. The 2016 Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey made specifically for the Clinical Center is a collaboration between the Office of Workforce Management and Development and the Society for Human Resource Management.

The survey was sent to all Clinical Center staff with unique login information. Staff will use that information to log into the survey and complete questions made specifically for Clinical Center staff. This survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and will be entirely confidential. It will be available until March 11.

A survey kickoff took place in the Clinical Center atrium Feb. 1 and there were treats for those who had already completed it. Staff will also come to the units to help clinicians, nurses, and technicians complete their surveys when it is convenient and easy for them.

This unique survey is designed to help leadership understand the needs and opinions of all Clinical Center staff. This survey relies on employee input and engagement to determine and shape the future of the entire Clinical Center. The future is in our hands!

Everyone who works in the Clinical Center, in every type of occupation, can provide feedback in the 2016 NIH Clinical Center Employee Survey.
