Staff Survey 2017 results are in!

07 Jun 2017

93% of staff consider the University a ‘good place to work’ according to Staff Survey 2017

Your voice, our manchester

The Staff Survey 2017 saw the highest ever response rate with 72% of eligible staff (7,658 colleagues) taking part.  

As you will see from the reports (below), the results show there are some encouraging results including 93% of respondents saying that the University is a good place to work, 91% saying they are proud to work here and, overall, 81% saying they are satisfied with their jobs.  

It’s encouraging that 90% of respondents understood and support our core Manchester 2020 goals and, that out of 49 other higher education institutions who Capita have surveyed in the last two years, our results place us 3rd.

I, and the rest of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT), appreciate that the Staff Survey took place before the recent M2020 announcement proposing changes in staffing.   As you will see from the results, one area which we need to focus on is helping staff to prepare for and cope with change.  This will be particularly important as our University aims to meet its ambitious Manchester 2020 goals. 

We will identify other key areas that we need to focus on.  University-level and local-level action plans will be developed in the coming months to address these key issues and these will be shared with you in due course.
