WestEd periodically engages an external firm to conduct an employee opinion survey. The results help agency leaders to make sound decisions about organizational direction and improvements. The survey is sent to every staff member, and responses are anonymous.

Below are some comments that staff made in the most recent survey, spring 2018.

  • WestEd is such an amazing and influential organization in not only education but in making a difference for the future of learning.
  • I have worked at WestEd for several years and there are many things that I love about the organization: I highly respect and appreciate my supervisor, colleagues, and staff; I feel that the teams in our center are highly efficient, effective, and collaborative; we do high quality work that really matters; we are highly regarded by our clients for our expertise, and the collaborative and thorough style with which we approach our work.
  • I love working with my clients at WestEd and with my team. I firmly believe in the mission of the work we are doing to make education better for students, educators and communities. I have dedicated my professional career to improving public education and the level of work I get to do at WestEd means that I can see the contributions I get to make.
