Focus Groups

In 2014, IANR conducted focus groups with individuals across IANR to gather feedback on what is most critical to our employees. We wanted to find out what’s working, and what’s not. This feedback is aiding us as we shape the direction and efforts of INSPIRE.

Employee Survey

Earlier this year, we conducted our first IANR staff-wide employee survey. As we continue to work on the culture of IANR, we wanted to ensure all employees had the opportunities to provide feedback and input. Thank you to everyone who responded, as this is critical to our ongoing success. We have analyzed the results and want to share with you the highlights. This survey is intended to be conducted biannually to ensure our efforts are having the intended impact.
