Learn More About the Employee Voice Survey
In 2017, the three CSU Employee Councils embarked on an effort to share the voices of employees on experiences related to salary and benefits. In recent years, the Councils anecdotally have heard increasing concerns from employees and felt compelled to find a way to formalize the collective employee voice and share their perspectives with the leadership team at Colorado State University (CSU). The goal of the survey was to provide CSU leadership with a better understanding of some of the issues employees face and the corresponding impacts on the CSU workforce. In order to attain that goal, the Employee Voice Survey included two open-ended questions where employees had an opportunity to share their firsthand experience, “tell us your story”. Learn more about the survey, the findings, and the recommendations.

As a state institution of higher education, the university celebrates, honors, and respects the First Amendment and your right to free speech. However, those rights are not without limit, and it’s important to understand what constitutes protected expressive activity and what is not permitted at this public university.
