HR Customer Service Survey
The Office of Human Resources seeks your help. As a team, we have pledged our dedication to improving the overall customer service experience of all who use our services including faculty, staff and visitors. As part of this pledge, we are seeking your input on how to achieve this goal today and into the future. We are focused on consistently delivering a positive customer service experience.
To capture your opinion, we have created a brief, user-friendly, online survey. The survey comprises 24 questions, including open-ended questions. By working with an external company to design, administer and collect survey feedback, the Office of Human Resources is offering a survey that is anonymous, secure and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. It can be completed either online or in paper format at any time during the ‘open’ period beginning Monday, June 16 and ending Friday, June 27. Paper copies will be distributed on request from the Office of Human Resources. Contact Maria Thomason at 202-319-5050 for a paper copy.
To access the survey, go to http://humanresources.cua.edu/announcements/ and click on Take the HR Customer Service Survey.
Thank you in advance for your support of this important initiative. We look forward to receiving your feedback.
