News from Business Affairs, at Staff Senate meeting

The division of Business Affairs is establishing benchmarks. In coming weeks, Business Affairs will conduct two surveys.

One will be an internal Business Affairs employee engagement survey.

The other will look at Business Affairs’ customer service. Using questions developed by the Education Advisory Board, this UNCG Administrative Services survey will be sent to managers, deans, chairs, etc, across the university to see how Business Affairs is doing from a “customer’s” perspective.

Charlie Maimone, vice chancellor for business affairs, told Staff Senators on Nov. 13 that the surveys are not about evaluating performance. They are about looking forward, he explained. These surveys will establish a baseline helpful for the future. He showed samples of similar helpful surveys conducted at UNC Wilmington during his tenure there.
