Own Your Engagement!

There’s still time to share your opinions about how Sibley can help build a better workplace. The survey ends Sunday, March 26. We know you’re incredibly busy and asked to take a lot of surveys, but this one is different. The Johns Hopkins Medicine Employee Engagement Survey is your opportunity to make your work life better for you. It will take no more than 10 minutes.

For those who have not yet participated, there’s still time! Log onto https://gx.gallup.com/jhmq12.gx and enter your unique access code, which was emailed to you from Gallup. If you misplaced your access code or have any questions about the survey process, please contact Gallup Client Support at q12help@gallupmail.com or 1-800-788-9987 for assistance in English or 1-402-951-3646 for assistance in Spanish.

As a reminder, this survey is completely confidential. Gallup is administering this survey, so no one at Johns Hopkins or Sibley will ever have access to any individual responses.

Please remember to visit the human resources engagement activities table during the survey period for snacks, giveaways and movie ticket drawings. Also, vouchers for free coffee will be available for employees who’ve taken the survey. Don’t forget to enter to win prizes like a spa, family games or summer barbecue gift basket.
