Survey Measures

Gallup’s internationally-renowned research has identified 12 specifically-worded measures about engagement that indicate a high-performing work environment, known as the “Q12.”

Q12 Hierarchy

Additionally, our UCSF staff engagement survey asks data-driven items tailored toward key UCSF priorities, including indices on Accountability, Belonging, Intent to Stay and Recommending UCSF.

Engagement Survey Additional Items:  Accountability, Belonging, Intent to Stay, and Recommend

We also ask staff to respond to one open-ended question: “What can UCSF do to make this an even better place to work?” Responses to all questions are confidential, combined with comments from at least five respondents by Gallup and reported to UCSF exactly as written.
