Remember, remember 20 December!

As we head towards 20 December for our annual festive break, and everyone is running around for last minute presents, staff are urged to grab their last opportunity to have their say by completing their staff survey.

The overall survey response rate is currently 51.2% with the following areas topping the response rates so far:-

Strategic Planning: 81%

Corporate Communications: 68%

Human Resources: 67%

Institute of Infection and Global Health: 61%

School of Environmental Sciences: 52%

School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science: 51%

Frances Hewison, Deputy Director of Human Resources, who is leading the staff survey, commented: “I would like to thank everyone who has completed the survey already and ask that those who haven’t completed it so far, take time to have their say. The survey is such an important opportunity for staff to inform decision making in all areas of the organisation. It is three years since the last survey and the more people contribute their ideas and concerns, the more useful the results will be in assembling an overall view of where we are doing well and where we must take action.

“Although the survey and reports are completely anonymous – Capita Surveys and Research will not provide any analysis of a group of less than 10 – the results directly inform the University’s annual planning processes which will be reviewed on a quarterly basis.”
