HR to conduct
empolyee focus groups
Employees are the best source of answers to these questions, thats
why Human Resources has commissioned Al Kirk, chair of the Department
of Social Work at Southeastern Louisiana University, to develop and conduct
focus group sessions about the Universitys work environment.
A random sample of Emory staff has been invited to participate during the week of Feb. 19.
Respondents will attend small group sessions at a time convenient to
their work schedules.
Although participating in a focus group can be challenging, most
people find it quite interesting and rewarding, Kirk said. Its
a great way for employees to let Emory know what really matters to them.
Kirk will summarize key findings to management, along with recommendations for further investigation. The report will focus on opportunities for making Emory an employer of choice.
