WCC Pulse Survey Dashboard
The Workplace Climate Committee (WCC) is charged with regularly assessing workplace climate at WHOI and providing leadership on the development and implementation of efforts to continuously improve the workplace climate. In the past, this has included the 2016 Workplace Climate Survey conducted with the assistance of Rankin & Associates. In 2021-2022, an Institutional assessment was conducted by Ogletree Deakins. While the WCC will continue to conduct regular (approximately every five years) large climate surveys, we feel that it is important to add smaller, more frequent surveys to better keep our finger on the pulse of the Institution.
To that end, the WCC will be conducting a monthly pulse survey. This will be a short, anonymous survey to solicit regular feedback from all WHOI employees, post-docs, and students. Composite category results, summarized common responses, and anonymized full responses will be posted each month on this WCC Pulse Survey Dashboard. Anonymized responses identifying needed actions will be collated and forwarded to the appropriate groups/departments. We are striving towards transparency, while protecting the anonymity of responses. This will be a work in progress – the questions and how the results are reported may evolve over time.
The results of these monthly surveys will be maintained by the WCC and used to help develop and maintain a positive workplace climate at WHOI where everyone feels respected, included and valued.
This pulse survey is one mechanism by which WHOI employees, students and postdocs can provide feedback. Others mechanisms include:
- Committees and groups such as the Joint Program Student Reps, Postdoctoral Association, Technical Staff Committee, Scientific Staff Executive Committee, Committee for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Women’s Committee.
- The WHOI Suggestion Box on the WHOI internal webpage.
- Reporting of harassment can be made through your supervisor, department chair, HR (Meg Green), or anonymously through the WHOI Ethics Hotline, EthicsPoint.
Feedback and suggestions on this Pulse Survey can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The survey is open Mar 27 - Mar 31
