RESPECT Engagement Survey
There is no question that engagement is vital to any successful experience and that is certainly true in the workplace.
UNO’s 2019 RESPECT Employee Engagement Survey helped provide UNO with the best information, feedback, and resources to help make this an even better place to work. The RESPECT themes are:
- Exciting Work
- Education and Career
- Conditions at Work
UNO employees helped produce an impressive 72% response rate. Thanks to these responses, units across campus took action to provide continuous quality improvement.
The next RESPECT Engagement Survey will take place in 2022. More information will be posted in the Maverick Daily as it’s available.

Performance Management & Improvement
Performance Management is not a one-time occurrence. It is a continuous cycle of planning, managing, and reviewing employee performance in which communication is key.
Managers will determine performance expectations and objectives as well as expectations around job competencies and key behaviors required for individuals on their team.
Employees will work with their managers to understand expectations, establish performance goals, and plan their personal development.
Performance is documented in the performance evaluation and is based upon UNO’s Values. The optional feedback tool is available for use.
Please contact Employee Relations if you need assistance in composing the evaluation.
