Dear colleague,

Back in June we contacted you about your experience of work during this time of unprecedented change. Please take a moment to watch the video below to hear from a few of our colleagues about their experiences, as well as our Director of Human Resources, Richard Brooks.

The feedback you provided last time was invaluable and led to some key changes including:

  • The launch of new communications channels: a weekly update from the Vice-Chancellor, a fortnightly Operational Update, and monthly Town Halls to keep you up to date with the latest developments.
  • Improvements to working arrangements: a host of safety measures were implemented to make campus Covid-secure; we continued to encourage flexible working where possible; we launched ‘Tools for the job’ so colleagues can request the equipment they need to work from home effectively.
  • Increased visibility of useful resources: we’ve continued to promote wellbeing resources, as well as creating tailored Covid-19 content, and developede-modules to help colleagues returning to work.

Things continue to change at a rapid pace, so we are keen to understand the ongoing impact this is having on your work situation. We would like to hear how you are now and your views on what is working well and which areas we should focus on improving over the coming months and beyond.

The survey should only take 10 minutes to complete. There are also opportunities throughout to add your comments.

The survey is completely anonymous and conducted in line with the Data Protection Act. Responses will be treated confidentially, and we will not look at the views of groups of less than 10, so no individual can be identified.

If you have more than one role, please complete the survey for the role you spend most time in. If you wish to comment on your other role(s) please use the free text box at the end.

Please take part by the end of Tuesday 20 October.

If you have any queries or wish to receive a paper version of the survey, please contact Deborah Griffin, Learning & Organisational Development Manager.
