The pulse survey was jointly created between People and Culture, Department of Management, Marketing & Entrepreneurship, School of Psychology, Speech and Hearing, Academic Services Group and Wellness Services. The survey was put together at pace and it was a fantastic example of cross unit collaboration in action.
1182 of our staff completed the first wave of the survey. This allowed for a rich gathering of data and analysis.
There were 47 staff, responding to the first pulse survey, who requested contact be made with them. Each of these staff members have been contacted directly by a member of the People and Culture team.
Each SLT member has access to their results and is working their way through the data and, in the first instance, implementing changes and providing clarity where immediate action can be taken.
It is vitally important that we continue to gather data on how our staff are doing in the current climate. This will tell us, as time progresses, where we need to focus our efforts and to see if our interventions to address issues are having a positive impact on our staff. We will be asking staff to complete the survey every fortnight.
