Rowdy working on a desktop computer.Metropolitan State University of Denver is continually working to improve the employee experience and become a professional destination of choice. To meet this goal, the University is excited to once again solicit employee feedback and insight to help make MSU Denver a top place to work.

In January, MSU Denver will not administer its annual Universitywide Engagement, Leader and Self-Identification survey; instead, the University will pursue Top Workplaces recognition.

“Being recognized with a Top Workplaces award is proof positive that we put our MSU Denver people first and that we value them,” said Stacy Dvergsdal, associate vice president for Human Resources. “Not to mention, research shows companies that earn recognition as an organization of choice attract better job candidates, find the right talent for their organization and have lower turnover.”

What you need to know about the Top Workplaces survey:

  • Top Workplaces awards are based solely on feedback captured from one five-minute employee-engagement survey administered by Energage.
  • The survey will be open from Jan. 24 through Feb. 4.
  • All MSU Denver employees (including affiliate faculty and student employees) who were hired before Oct. 29 will be invited to participate.
  • Survey responses are confidential.
  • The University’s placement will be announced in April.

Completing the survey is easy and brief, but the impacts are significant. If MSU Denver is recognized, we will continue to build on the knowledge gleaned from the 2021 Universitywide Engagement, Leader and Self-Identification survey. That survey showed an impressive 84% engagement rate among employees. It also showed the need for increased employee recognition. In response, the University has elevated and celebrated employees through the Roadrunners Who Soar awards, Years of Service, the President’s Team Awards, the Roadrunner Shoutout of the Week series and more.

“MSU Denver is continually working to improve the employee experience,” said Dvergsdal. “To achieve the goal of becoming a Top Workplace, it’s important to consistently gauge and better understand the work experience of current employees and ensure that they feel valued and belong.”
