In this month's Data Bite, we explore the upcoming NSIRO survey. On June 21, 2018, over 350 people attended the AIR webinar, Using the National Survey of IR Offices Data to Inform Decision Making, with instructor Darlena Jones, AIR Director of Assessment and Research. Participants learned about findings from the 2015 data collection, including the average IR Office staff size and the work produced by the IR Office. Participants also discovered how some institutions have used these data to leverage change within their IR Office. Additionally, Darlena discussed plans for the fall 2018 National Survey, including:
- The addition of metrics such as IR Office staff salary and compensation and assessment of the efficiency and effectiveness of the IR Office
- AIR’s contract with Dynamic Benchmarking to provide survey participants access to limited reporting and benchmarking at no charge (there is a charge for access to full reporting and benchmarking to offset the expense of hiring Dynamic Benchmarking)
AIR anticipates the 2018 National Survey will launch in late September/early October to IR Office Directors. If your office has a new Director of IR, please contact Darlena Jones with the updated contact information.
