PSO Climate Survey Results

The PSO Executive Committee conducted a climate survey of its membership in February 2014 to focus on a few specific topics, including work conditions, compensation/benefits, and PSO member services/representation. The goals and objectives of the survey were to:

  1. Identify questions and/or concerns the professional staff may have.
  2. If appropriate and feasible, have the PSO Executive Committee find solutions/answers to any concerns/questions identified and communicate them to the PSO membership.
  3. Use the results as a means to focus advocacy, raise awareness of resources available to professional staff, communicate policies, procedures, training, etc. mandated by the university that specifically affects professional staff, and provide a means by which the PSO Executive Committee can serve its members in a clearly defined leadership role.
  4. Provide specific information that can be utilized by the newly formed PSO Standing Committees to serve the PSO membership better.
