Work and Wellbeing Survey

A pulse survey is run for staff three times during the academic year exploring key work and wellbeing topics as well as real time organisational issues.

About the survey

Find out more about the work and wellbeing survey.


Introduced at the start of the pandemic to understand staff experience of work and wellbeing, this survey has become a key listening tool helping to shape the University’s approach during the pandemic and beyond.

The surveys have provided valuable data to inform senior leadership decisions, provide longitudinal data to track trends and benchmark data to assess against national standards. 

The next survey is planned for November 2022.
