Staff Survey 2010 - have your say

29 Sep 2010

New and redesigned staff survey available for all staff to complete

This time it’s quicker to do with fewer questions but with more of a focus on you and your day-to-day work.  All staff are encouraged to take part in the survey which aims to help the University address any staff concerns.

Staff with internet access are asked to complete the survey online at:

Paper copies have been made available to Estates and STARS staff  who do not have computer access. If you have responsibility for members of staff without email or internet access, please could you ensure that a paper copy of the survey is made available to them?  Additional paper copies are available from Janice Drew at:

The survey will remain open until 5pm on Wednesday 13 October 2010.

Focus groups were held earlier this year to seek feedback from staff on previous surveys.  As a result of this a number of revisions have been made to the questionnaire and there is now much more of a focus on day-to-day working life within the University.  The total number of questions has been reduced and this, in turn, has reduced the length of time it takes to complete the survey to 8-10 minutes.

In a letter inviting staff to take part in the survey, the President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, said: "The University is committed to listening and responding to your views and the survey provides you with an opportunity to have your say."

For a full copy of the President’s letter which accompanies the questionnaire, visit: 

All responses from the survey will remain completely anonymous and confidential and only combined results will be reported.  

The headline results of the survey together with an indication of when the action plan will be publicised will be released before the University closes for the Christmas break in December.
