Our 2019 Staff Engagement survey closed on September 6, and since then, the UCI and Gallup survey teams have been working diligently to prepare results and reports for your review and action. Now the truly important work begins; sharing our individual reports with our teams and developing action plans (impact plans) to improve engagement in our areas. This page provides useful post-survey resources to help you make the most of the survey results.

  • Feb. 28 Department & Individual Engagement Plans
    Due in ACHIEVEonline


What is it? The engagement planning process is a time for leaders to share employee engagement survey results with their team, have a dialogue about the results, and choose one opportunity for improvement to focus on in the coming year. The engagement planning session is a time to brainstorm ideas and develop an action plan as a team. An engagement plan should be used on an ongoing basis with follow-up to gauge success and adjust as necessary.

Why is it important? The engagement planning process is the most critical piece of the engagement survey because it allows time for teams to communicate and work on areas needing improvement. Engagement planning is important for several reasons:

  • Employees who participated in the survey deserve results
  • People are naturally curious about the results
  • Leaders have the opportunity to discuss the results and receive ideas and suggestion from others in order to fully understand the results
  • The process allows leaders to demonstrate a willingness to listen and respond
  • Leaders can show that they use feedback in a positive way
  • Team involvement in developing an engagement plan improves results

Engagement Planning Process In the coming months, leaders will receive instructions on how to access and understand their department’s survey results. All leaders are encouraged to attend a town hall session in November – December to hear overall UCI results and learn more about engagement planning. In addition, training sessions will be held for managers and supervisors so that you may learn how to discuss your results with your team and how to take next steps.

After discussing your survey results, you are ready to create an engagement plan with your team. Each team is expected to identify one engagement issue to work on throughout the year. You may document your engagement plan as one of your ACHIEVE goals. Alternatively, there is a place within Gallup Online to record your team’s engagement plan.

After completing the engagement training, if you have any questions regarding the engagement planning process, please contact your HR Business Partner.
