Starting Oct. 15, all regular UTPA employees will begin completing the "Survey of Organizational Excellence."
The University participates in this statewide effort to measure organizational effectiveness and the quality of the work force. UTPA joined other State of Texas agencies in this program, which is designed to strengthen agency performance, improve customer service and enhance state government.
Survey instruments will be delivered to employees via campus mail. The instrument may be completed in writing or on line via the SOE web site at www.survey.utexas.edu/survey.
Instructions for both methods of completion are included in the survey packet. Employees may complete the survey during normal working hours. All surveys are anonymous.
More information about the survey can be found at the web site. Employees also may write by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 512/471-5455. Judy Vinson is the survey contact person at UTPA and can be reached at email@example.com or 956/381-2383.
The School of Social Work at The University of Texas at Austin administers and scores the survey. Results should be available by late November.
