Our Employee Engagement Survey is coming soon

Our Employee Engagement Survey will open on 5 November 2018.

How does it feel to work here? How are your wellbeing and your career prospects? Do you feel engaged with the University and supported in your team?

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.

All responses are completely confidential; an independent company, ORC, runs the survey for us and your feedback cannot be identified to you.

73% of colleagues completed the last survey in 2016; and to continue to ensure the views of everyone are represented in the actions that will follow, we would like to encourage as many colleagues as possible to complete a copy of the survey in 2018. Response rates will be published weekly during the survey open period, and there will be prizes for the team and College or Service who reach 100% completion first. We will use this Employee Engagement Survey to measure how we’re doing and to make further improvements where necessary.

The University will once again donate £1 to charity for each survey completed. We are supporting local hospices, foodbanks and Cancer Research. We'll be hoping to beat 2016's fantastic total of £3,306.

The key areas we are focusing on to continue to make Exeter a great place to work are informed by your feedback in the Employee Engagement Survey. We’re working together on the following Positive Working Environment themes, based on 2016 feedback:

Colleges and services all made local changes thanks to your feedback in 2016 – read about them here. For more information on how services and colleges are structured download these slides: Employee Engagement Survey Structure
