Local Staff Survey 2019 reports published

The Staff Survey 2019 ran from Monday, 4 March until Monday, 8 April 2019. Over 7,000 colleagues took part, and it gave you the opportunity to share your thoughts about working at the University. With this feedback we aim to make improvements to our working environment and shape future plans. 

The RAG (Red, Amber, Green) reports give an overview of the survey results at University level and by the Faculty/PS/School/Directorate/Cultural Institution. Our survey consultants Capita distributed the reports to the Senior Leadership Team and Faculty/Professional Services/Cultural Institution leadership teams, and they are now available for all colleagues to view.
