Louisville magazine to send survey to UofL employees
Louisville magazine wants University of Louisville administrators, faculty and staff to help it decide whether the university deserves to be named Best of Louisville in the magazine's annual Best of Louisville - Employer project.
Some 400 randomly selected administrators, faculty and staff will receive an e-mail request to complete a survey ranking the university as an employer. Deadline for responding is Oct. 8, and there will be two reminder e-mails before then.
The e-mails will come from BOLemployer@loumag.com and have the subject line "Louisville Magazine Employee Survey." They will arrive starting today, Monday, Sept. 27. Everyone is asked to be on the lookout for the e-mail and to check their e-mail filters or junk mail to ensure its receipt.
"We appreciate everyone who receives an e-mail taking a few minutes to answer the survey questions," said Bob Goldstein, associate university provost for Institutional Research and Effectiveness. "We know UofL has a lot to offer employees, and we want others to know it, as well."
The university already has made it through one selection process. Human Resources and Institutional Research & Planning submitted a nomination packet in August. Louisville magazine editorial staff and a panel of local human resource and professional development professionals picked the university as a finalist from the initial 65 employers who vied for the honor.
A panel also will select the recipient based on a combination of the nomination materials and the employee survey results. Criteria were developed by a panel of Louisville professionals, all affiliated with the national or local Society of Human Resource Management.
The "best employer" will be featured in the December issue of Louisville magazine and will receive a plaque.
