Fall 2023 Employee Engagement & Well-Being Survey Results

Key Highlights from the Fall 2023 Employee Engagement & Well-Being Survey

  • 2023 is a baseline year designed for the initial measurement of employee engagement, well-being, and other measures of importance to San Diego Unified School District.
  • There is a range of engagement across workgroups within the district. While the survey items are the same, there will be different interpretations of what the item means, and different actions to determine what can be done to improve the engagement for each employee.
  • Within the engagement items, the relative strengths were Q01: Expectations and Q07: Opinions Count. The largest opportunities for growth include Q04: Recognition, Q05: Supervisor Cares, and Q11: Progress.

Anonymous, team-level results are being shared with principals and department managers at Gallup-facilitated trainings on January 4 and January 11. Site leaders will learn about the Gallup Access platform as well as resources and tools to engage in conversations with their teams to identify the most important areas to focus on within our schools, district, and community. 

Staff can join in by discussing the results with their teams, sharing their voice, and helping plan positive changes for their workplace. Details for future opportunities to get involved will be shared by your manager, supervisor or principal.

Senior leadership will analyze the survey data in collaboration with educational partners to generate goals and next steps for district-level ownership of the results.
