Employee Benefits Preferences Survey Coming Soon!

As a key part of the UW Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Project, UW Human Resources is partnering with Mercer Consulting to conduct an Employee Benefits Preferences Survey.

Why: Your perspective is important!
The purpose of the survey is to gather feedback regarding the benefits our employees value and to design a competitive benefits offering that will serve the diverse and changing needs of UW employees to attract and retain top talent. There is no intent to reduce or eliminate any existing employee benefits, but rather to better understand your preferences for and perspectives on current benefits and get your ideas about any desired offerings.

When: Starting Monday, November 26
Between November 26 and December 14, 2018, all benefits-eligible UW employees will have the opportunity to complete the electronic survey confidentially. Employees will be asked about their satisfaction with the benefits that mattered most to them when they began employment with UW, existing benefits (health insurance, vacation time, etc.), and what matters most to them now.

Results: Summary shared in 2019
A summary of the survey results will be shared in 2019 and will provide UW with a clear sense of which benefits are most valuable to faculty and staff and how satisfied those groups are with the current benefits package.

Watch your email
The Employee Benefits Preferences Survey is an important opportunity for employees to engage and have their voices heard on whether UW’s current benefits program is meeting their needs, and to suggest their level of interest in possible additions and/or changes. Mercer will send you an email with a personalized link to the survey and instructions for completing it. This email is not a phishing scam. The email subject line will be “UW Employee Benefits Preferences Survey” and will come from the email address of Please complete the survey as soon as possible.
