The Best Place to Work

As the University of Maryland continues its ascendency as a premier institution “equal to the best,” the Thriving Workplace Initiative is critical to harnessing and acknowledging each employee’s contributions every step of the way.

Improving the employer-employee relationship and redefining what it means to be an effective leader, manager, or supervisor at the university are critical parts of the initiative. So is ensuring that every employee’s skills and talents are valued. As we execute our mission, it is critical that every employee feels equipped to succeed and all UMD voices are heard.

The Thriving Workplace Initiative launches in April with a campus-wide employee engagement and inclusion survey, administered by Gallup, world-renowned experts in employee engagement. The survey will be open from April 18 – May 6.

All university employees are encouraged to take the survey so your voice can be heard!

The survey is completely confidential.

All employees with a UMD email address will receive a confidential link via email to take the survey online. Gallup will administer paper versions of the survey in multiple languages at locations and times accessible to non-English speaking or non-computer accessing employees. If you need help with the survey, you can contact Gallup Client Support by sending an email to or by calling 1-800-788-9987.
