It was designed to gather employee thoughts and feelings in regards to the employee benefits offered by SAMPLE. Employees were allowed to openly share through written comments and to provide a broader, objective perspective through scaled responses to specific statements. No one, except the Cascade staff, reviewed the individual survey responses. All of the comments are listed as written, correcting only for obvious mechanical errors. While some employees may have chosen to openly discuss areas of pride and concern about their employee benefits, the purpose of this report was to gain a primarily objective, broad perspective of employees’ views so that constructive action can be taken as deemed appropriate. Cascade Employers Association hopes you find the report to be a valuable document in your employee benefits evaluation process. Cascade Employers Association Page 1 of 124 SAMPLE - Employee Benefits Survey ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Interpreting the Ratings While in general, the lower the numerical rating, the more desirable the benefit, ratings must be viewed in context. Consider the following when interpreting the ratings: ƒ How ratings compare to each other, especially the lowest and highest ƒ Comments made which may give greater meaning to the ratings Ratings are objective data which provide a different perspective compared to day-today, face-to-face communication. In conjunction with the written comments, these ratings are a useful way to gain insight into the raters’ perceptions. Even if inaccurate, perceptions are part of the individual’s reality and therefore must be treated with regard. Sometimes the person who is dissatisfied alerts us to benefit challenges which may be important.

Of those willing to consider a reduction, 12% would do so for the ability to have a “Telecommuting/Working from Home” benefit. ƒ Of the 230 written comments “Flexible Schedules or Compressed Workweeks” was mentioned 73 times and the word “telecommuting” was mentioned 21 times. ƒ When given the opportunity to comment on their satisfaction with the current employee benefits offered on an overall basis, comments were split between 30% positive, 40% neutral, and 30% negative.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
