Employee Engagement Survey - thank you

Many thanks to everyone who took part in our Employee Engagement Survey.

A big thank you to 73% of colleagues who completed a copy of the Employee Engagement Survey.  Together we have raised a fantastic £3,556 for charity, beating the 2016 total by £250.

The University is donating £1 for each completed survey, and colleagues chose to allocate their £1 as follows: 

  • Foodbanks (to be shared between Exeter and Penryn foodbanks) 40% £1,437
  • Hospices (shared between Hospiscare and Cornwall Hospice Care) 28% £1,002
  • Cancer Research 31% £1,117

Our overall 73% response rate is the same as our last survey in 2016, so gives meaningful comparison. Your feedback gives an accurate picture of how it feels to work here on which to base actions in the coming months.  

By working together we can find solutions to help us thrive. So the survey is the most important way of showing what matters to us all, and involvement from all colleagues across every area of the University’s business is vital to success. The response rates by College and Service are listed online.

We will use this Employee Engagement Survey to measure how we’re doing and to make further improvements where necessary.

Your feedback is currently being analysed by ORC, the independent company who run the survey for us.  We will be sharing the results on 21 January 2019 and action planning in colleges and services will begin, alongside work to identify themes that need action across the University and create action plans for these. Find out more on the online timeline.
