Staff Survey: latest update & what's next

A planning team is busy preparing for our next Staff Survey which will take place next year in 2016. There will be more information on how to take part in the coming months.

It’s been a little while since we updated you on what’s been going on since the last survey.

Three University-wide themes were agreed. Progress so far includes:

On Pay and Conditions

On Managing Change

  • Appointing Mark Ricketts to the new permanent role of Director of Process Improvement to lead on a programme of projects to make it easier for everyone to do their job and manage change.
  • Training a dozen staff to run process improvement workshops and teach colleagues on techniques such as process maps to help identify process issues and solutions.
  • Providing this training to over 100 colleagues so far - and while current courses are full, more dates will be released soon so watch this space.
  • Training a further 60 staff from across the University in project management using our new tools to enable them to plan and manage well-structured projects.
  • Qualified coaches are now available to support all staff experiencing change.

On Communication

  • 590 of you have already headed over to Ideahub, our pilot ideas scheme, which launched recently asking ‘Which single new IT service or technology would most improve your working life?’ You’ve already suggested 50 ideas, cast 1,543 votes and posted 121 comments. Take a look and add your own ideas or vote for those submitted by colleagues.
  • New VC Office web pages have brought together latest news and updates on the Vice-Chancellor’s activities on behalf of the University at home and abroad. They also include every Q&A from the six Let’s Talk meetings held so far; a blog post from Steve Egan, our new Vice-President (Implementation); and reports from the programme of Vice-Chancellor's visits to departments.  Physics, you’re up next!
  • Over 650 colleagues took part in our latest Let’s Talk meeting in April either in person or online. Our next Let’s Talk will take place on 18 November at 3.15pm in the Chancellors’ Building.
  • Our news is now being shared on nearly 40 digital screens across campus, with the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering the latest to come on board.
  • Our @UniofBathStaff Twitter account now has almost 1,000 followers. Why not sign up to get the latest news and information relevant to staff?
