Focus Group Sessions

UMSL HR is committed to working alongside our faculty and staff associations, as well as other stakeholder groups and individuals, to gather feedback and collaboratively develop and advance employee-focused initiatives that enhance the employee experience.

In this spirit, we invited staff members to join us at focus groups to engage directly in conversations to support this commitment. We then hosted debrief sessions to provide focus group themes as well as specific responses. Results from the Focus Groups were presented to staff in early 2022 and are available to review.

In September 2022, UMSL HR hosted sessions to talk about actions taken and priorities going forward based on staff feedback from the Focus Groups. The results of the sessions are available for review.

We welcome an ongoing conversation. To offer input, please reach out to HR directly or via our anonymous feedback form.
