There are 5 comments on Survey of BU Diversity Efforts Opens to Staff Today

  1. “Please be assured that results will never be reported in any way that would allow individuals to be identified. Korn Ferry and Qualtrics are each contractually obligated to use your personal information and responses only as permitted by Boston University.”—Does this mean that the results are only anonymous/confidential outside of BU?

    1. From Ken Freeman, interim vice president for human resources:

      Korn Ferry is administering the survey on behalf of BU. No one at Boston University will have access to any individual’s responses. Korn Ferry will only share (1) response rates by school or major department, and (2) their report at the end describing themes, gaps, and opportunities.

      Let us know if you have any other questions!

  2. Is this the survey that staff were told that we’d see come for opinions about reopening, or is that a separate one?

    A comment in that article indicated that that survey was coming out March 22nd (which this one did), but the questions in it seem to be more specific to Diversity and Inclusion than focused on any work/life balance impacts/benefits related to remote work/COVID.
