Subject: [Research] ISU HR On-line Application/Hiring Survey

Illinois State University
College of Business
Marketing Research Class

April 4, 2007

Dear ISU Employee,

As members of the ISU graduate marketing research class, we are asking your assistance with a research project involving the Illinois State University Human Relations Department. As you are aware, ISU recently made the decision to go completely online with the application/hiring practices. We need your input on ways to improve this new process.

You have been contacted to participate in this study because you are currently listed on the user account for the new application/hiring system. (You may opt out of future campus surveys by visiting http://www.ilstu.edu/ulid and changing your survey participation preferences.) We have developed a relatively short survey to learn what people who use the system think of the new process. In conjunction with the ISU HR department, we are hoping to get your valuable insights in order to provide the best possible system. The survey is designed to be completed in 10-15 minutes.

Your participation in the study is strictly voluntary. You are not required to participate in this study and may stop your participation at any time by not submitting the survey. Your responses to this survey will remain confidential. If you do choose to participate, your name will be entered in a drawing for a $15 gift certificate to The Bone Student Center Barnes and Noble.

By participating in this survey, the HR department will be better able to provide a system that serves you well. This is your chance to be heard! We would appreciate your help with our class research project by completing this survey by April 13th. The survey can be accessed at the following address:

http://survey.lilt.ilstu.edu/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=mlKMn84

Since the survey is on an Illinois State University server, you will be asked for your ISU ULID and password in order to have access to the survey. Should you have any questions regarding the study, please contact our professor, Dr. Tim Longfellow at 438-7262 or the Research Ethics & Compliance Office at (309) 438-8451.

Thank you in advance for your time and participation.

Sincerely,

Allison Beck
Marketing Research Student
