Pension Communications Survey: Update

Thank you to all UVic pension plan members who completed the pension communications survey earlier this year.  

Response to the survey was tremendous. More than 2100 UVic pension plan members took the time to share their experiences, insights and wishes with us over the three weeks in May in which the survey was open.

Respondents were diverse. There was equal representation of each of the three pension plans, and we heard from a broad range of members at varied stages of life and career.

The survey results will help us engage and communicate with plan members more effectively, and will be formative in helping Pension Services shape our communications with plan members over the coming years. Additionally, detailed survey results and comments will allow us to continue improvements to the service we provide to you. We are already implementing early changes to key areas – including, for example, in seminars we are sponsoring this fall.

Summary reports from the survey are being shared with the governing bodies for each pension plan; and, relevant report findings will be shared with other key stakeholders and partners at UVic, in the interest of providing a cohesive and positive plan member experience.

We look forward to the work ahead. Thank you again for your contributions to this survey.
