Have you received your Staff Survey email?

12 Mar 2013

The Staff Survey 2013 is now open - check your inbox for an email from Capita

Staff Survey 2013

Around 9,600 University staff are being asked to complete the Staff Survey 2013* – whether online or by completing a paper copy. 

It only takes around 15 minutes to complete, and you can be sure that all the information you supply will be anonymous and treated in strictest confidence.

This is because the Staff Survey 2013 is being administered on the University’s behalf by Capita – an external company with plenty of experience in running these kinds of surveys.

The survey results will be published in June, with action plans being agreed in September at a University-wide, Faculty and Professional Support Services/Library/visitor attraction level.

What do I need to do?

If you have email access at work, you should have already received your email from Capita:

  • The email address the message will come from will be Surveys, Staff and the subject line will be University of Manchester Staff Survey
  • If you haven’t received this email by now, look in your spam/junk email to see if it’s there. If you still can’t find it, contact Capita on 0800 587 3115.
  • Simply open the email and you’ll find a weblink to the survey and your own unique password, which you’ll need to access the questionnaire
  • Just click on the link, insert your password and fill in the questionnaire

Most of the questions require a tick box answer, however there are opportunities for you to give more full responses to some questions.

Incentives

Once you’ve completed the survey, you’ll be asked if you want to take part in a prize draw to win one of six iPads.  If you do, enter your contact details. One winner will be picked each week – they will be chosen at random by Capita, so no-one at the University will be able to link your contact details with the information you’ve submitted on your questionnaire.

You’ll also be asked which of the three charities you want your £1 donation to go to (which the University will give on your behalf). Staff chose the three charities via an online vote, and they are: The Christie, Cancer Research UK and Water Aid.

Then just submit it your completed survey and you’re done. You won’t be sent a receipt or acknowledgement from Capita.

If you don’t complete the survey straight away, you will receive regular reminders from Capita, via email.

What if I don’t have email access at work?

If you don’t have email access at work, your manager will let you have a paper copy which you can complete and return to Capita in the pre-paid envelope.  

The survey runs until Friday 19 April, so there’s plenty of time to get involved.

Need help?

If you need help to complete the survey between now and 19 April, contact Capita on the Freephone number 0800 587 3115.
