KPI Employer Executive Summary Report, Summer 2000-Winter 2001.
Sheridan Coll. (Ontario).
In the mid 1990s, the Ontario Government decided to enhance the accountability of the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology by measuring and rewarding their performance in meeting specific goals and outcomes. The KPI Satisfaction Survey is a tool developed by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities in conjunction with the colleges to measure college performance. Information collected from students, graduates, and employers is used by the colleges to identify their strengths, to demonstrate their achievements, and to improve programs and services. This report presents the results of the Employer Satisfaction Survey for Sheridan College. It identifies the College's strengths and areas for improvement, as well as the drivers of satisfaction. The employer population for the summer 2000, fall 2000, and winter 2001 was 2,206 based on the number of graduates in the period who were employed. A total of 653 telephone surveys produced a response rate of 30%. Over 80% of employers were satisfied with graduates' skills and abilities, with the exception of math skills (74%) and research and analysis (73%). Six of the 18 skills, including teamwork and quality of work, received 90% or more satisfactory ratings. Five appendixes contain detailed charts and tables of survey results. (Contains 20 tables and charts.) (NB)
