Staff Survey Results 2016

Issued: Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:02:00 BST

The Staff Survey is one of the key opportunities we all have to share our views on life at the University - the positive aspects of working here as well as the areas we feel could be improved. It also offers us the chance to consider how we can best move forward collectively to achieve the University goals set out in Inspiring People, Changing the World.

The 2016 Staff Survey results for the University were published in full on 20 September and are available to view on our Inspiring Change webpages here. However, as well as understanding what’s happening at a University-wide level, it’s important we understand the specific working culture within each School, Service or Research Institute.

Sharing the Results

Survey results have been broken down into individual units by our survey provider and shared with senior management teams across the University. Work is now underway to share these at a local level, with the support of local ‘Engagement Leads’ who will support the cascade to ensure discussions are conducted in the best way for each area, to help facilitate continuing conversations and engagement with everyone. Professor Neal Juster, each VP/Head of College and HR Director, Christine Barr, will also be visiting each unit to seek feedback from a local level and to discuss the survey results and progress being made against the KPIs set out in the University Strategy.  This will help to inform our future action plans and their implementation at a University level.

Following the launch of the University Strategy in 2015, and paired with the results of staff surveys including our recent cultural diagnostic survey, there has been much activity across the University to help develop some identified areas for improvement and to support in the delivery of our shared goals as a University - you can read just some of these success stories here.

These stories are only a small insight into some of the positive activities happening throughout the University, and they will continue to grow over the coming months.  If you have a story of positive change or innovation on any scale, then please do get in touch!

Over to you
