Staff Survey 2011
7 March 2012
83% of staff believe they are treated with respect by their colleagues however only 23% of staff feel that major change is managed effectively by the University, according to the results of the latest staff survey.
Conducted in October and November 2011, the second staff survey saw 57% of staff taking the time to share their views with the University Senior Management Team - an increase from the 2008 survey where 43% of staff responded.
The survey was conducted through ORC International, one of the UK’s leading independent providers of staff surveys and employee engagement research.
Amongst the findings are: 76% of staff who completed the survey would recommend the University as a good place to work, 86% are clear about what is expected of them at work and 82% are proud to work for the University. However, only 24% of staff feel that poor performance is dealt with appropriately by their School/Directorate and only 36% of staff feel valued by the University.
The information provided by responses is helping the University understand:
- what it does well,
- how staff views and issues have changed since the 2008 survey,
- what doesn’t work so well
The results will enable the University, Schools or Directorates, to agree what they can do to change or develop a new approach.
Vice Chancellor, Dr David Grant, said: ‘I would like to thank our staff for taking the time to contribute their views. The survey outcomes are extremely valuable and provide a good evidence base for future decisions as the university moves forward.'
The full University results and more information about the survey is available at http://www.cf.ac.uk/humrs/pwe/survey/index.html The School/Directorate results will be released in the next few weeks.
