2019 Staff Engagement Survey

The 2019 Staff Engagement Survey concluded last week. A total of 18,738 staff members (or 52%) from more than 200 duty stations of the United Nations Secretariat completed the survey. The Office of Human Resources in the Department of Management Strategy, Policy and Compliance would like to thank all staff members who participated!



Through 61 multiple choice questions and 7 open-ended questions in the survey, staff members shared their thoughts and opinions – anonymously and confidentially – on what is working well in our organization and what needs to change.


The strong participation has resulted in rich, representative data. It will help senior leaders identify cross-cutting and entity-specific changes that are needed to improve staff engagement in the Organization’s work and its overall objectives.


A report, summarizing Secretariat-wide responses, is being prepared by the vendor, CultureIQ. The report will be ready for review by the Secretary-General and senior leaders in the first quarter of 2020, after which it will be shared with all staff members. 


The final response rates from respective entities can be viewed on the final leaderboard.
