The University of Maryland recently launched the Thriving Workplace Initiative, an effort sponsored by the Office of the President that aspires to make UMD the best place to work. The initiative aims to create a thriving work environment and a culture of engagement and inclusion among all UMD employees. Engaged employees work with passion, feel a profound connection to their workplace, and are empowered to succeed. Engaged employees also help an organization reach its fullest potential.
In this issue, we offer details on how you can contribute in making UMD the best place to work and provide details of the process to answer any questions you may have regarding the initial survey. The survey, which is administered and conducted by Gallup, is our first step in generating dialogue, action planning, and follow-up. The real power of the survey is in your opportunity to make your voice heard. The results will invite the opportunity to identify and address areas of improvement throughout the organization. Every employee plays a role in determining what to improve and making sure plans turn into action.
