Survey results

Thank you for completing the recent Work and Wellbeing survey. These are the results of the core questions in the Work and Wellbeing Survey run in November 2023. The report outlines the headline results. The response rate for the survey was 1,290 (34%) .

Summary

Carried out between 28 November and 12 December 2023, this survey was marked in terms of profile of respondents, specifically the higher level of participation by E&R staff. Additional effort was made to encourage staff to take part (through a video communicating the importance of the survey results and the impact that these have). The final tally of 34% was an improvement from the previous survey and in line with earlier levels of participation. Significantly, this survey had the highest contribution from E&R staff (35.4%), compared to previous surveys, possibly drawn by the workload theme, an area anticipated to be of concern. As a staff group with traditionally lower levels of engagement, this needs to be taken into account when interpreting the results. ‚Äč
