Executive Summary

This report contains a detailed statistical analysis of the results to the survey titled 2015 WHP Employee Survey . The results analysis includes answers from all respondents who took the survey in the 13 day period from Monday, August 03, 2015 to Sunday, August 16, 2015. 226 completed responses were received to the survey during this time. The response rate was a very respectable 67%. There is a margin of error of less than    (+or-) 5 percentage points with 95% confidence. The overall favorable response (respondent chose “Agree”) was 67% up from 65% in 2013.

It should be noted that the survey rating scale was changed from a 5 point scale (Strongly Agree-Agree-Neutral-Disagree-Strongly Disagree) in 2013 to a 3 point scale (Agree-Neutral-Disagree) in 2015.  Also the 2015 survey included 10 new questions (including an open ended question not shown below) , 7 slightly revised questions (green highlight below) and 1 original questions (blue highlight below) from 2013, so comparisons from year to year should be made cautiously.
