Staff Survey Findings
Regular surveys have been conducted since 2012, to target specific areas under investigation during any given review period, to identify areas where good progress is being made as well as those where further work may be required. In 2016 the University launched the first institutional bi-annual University Staff Experience Survey. This survey contains fixed, standardised questions which allows for benchmarking both within and outside of the University. The data is used at a University level to advance initiatives such as those addressing race and gender equality. The second University Staff Experience Survey took place during 2018.
Within NDM, we use the feedback from the bi-annual University Staff Experience surveys as part of our ongoing efforts and commitment to Athena SWAN and EDI more broadly. We use the data, as well as other sources, to underpin the development and implementation of action plans and targeted projects. The data allows us to provide meaningful tracking on areas where we have made changes, to inform future action, and to highlight and celebrate where improvements have been made for our Athena SWAN award applications.
The University has published the overall 2018 survey results in the Staff Experience Survey 2018 Report.
A summary of our NDM 2018 Survey Results can be found on our internal pages, so you will either need to be on a networked computer (within the University) or be on VPN to access it.
The Next Survey
The University’s 2021 Staff Experience Survey launches on 27 April – please take the time to have your say!
The survey is designed to gather insight from our staff about their experience of working here to help identify areas where the University and departments might need to make changes, and to hear about what is working well, so that we can share good practice.
When the survey launches, you will receive a personalised email from People Insight, a third-party provider contracted to run the survey on our behalf. All responses will be submitted direct to People Insight and data will be aggregated and de-identified before being shared with the University to maximise confidentiality. To find out more about the survey, visit the Staff Experience Survey webpages.
We would ask all staff to please participate. We need your feedback! Thank you.
