HR to conduct empolyee focus groups
What makes Emory a great place to work? What could make it even better?

Employees are the best source of answers to these questions, that’s 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 University’s 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. “It’s 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.”
