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.

This year, MSU Denver will not administer its annual Universitywide Engagement, Leader and Self-Identification survey; instead, the University will pursue Top Workplaces recognition beginning Jan. 24.

“MSU Denver has made great strides toward improving the employee experience through thoughtful, responsive and inclusive policies,” said President Janine Davidson, Ph.D. “Earning Top Workplaces recognition will help us better understand how we are serving employees and continue to attract top-quality job candidates.”

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.

“Every employee is integral to the success of MSU Denver and its students,” said Stacy Dvergsdal, associate vice president for Human Resources. “Offering a secure and confidential platform to share experiences and constructive feedback is so important to achieving our goal of creating a workplace where everyone feels genuinely engaged and valued. I invite all eligible employees to participate.”
