The results of the Staff Survey 2013 are now available. You can see the full set of University-level results at:

The headlines show that on the whole, respondents are positive about the University – 94% say the University is a good place to work and 92% said they are proud to work for the University.

These results compare favourably with the other higher education institutions surveyed in 2012/13 by Capita. Based on the statement: 'The University is a good place to work', the University ranks 1st of the 28 HEIs surveyed by Capita in 2012/13.

There are also areas where some improvement is needed, in particular Performance Development Reviews where only 64% of respondents said they had had one in the past 12 months.

Other areas for improvement are managing change, providing communication channels to feed views upwards in the University, and achieving a better work-life balance.

Local sets of results have also been provided to Deans, Heads of School, PSS Directors and the leaders of the University Library and visitor attractions.

They have been advised to share these results with their staff and carry out any further consultation. They will then be expected to put together an action plan for their own area of responsibility which will feed into one of the following:

  • University-level action plan
  • Faculty level (one action plan for each Faculty) led by the Vice-Presidents and Deans
  • Professional Support Services action plan led by the Registrar, Secretary and Chief Operating Officer
  • Library/visitor attractions action plan led by the Deputy President and Vice-Chancellor
