People and Culture Survey 2023 launches soon


April 3rd, 2023

The university will launch the People and Culture Survey on Tuesday 25 April 2023.

This staff engagement survey is an opportunity for colleagues across our UK, China and Malaysia campuses to provide feedback on their working environment and culture, and how they are supported in the workplace.

The survey will run until midnight on Wednesday 17 May 2023 and results will be shared with Departments and Schools to develop detailed action plans in response to the feedback received.

For each survey completed, the university will plant a tree through the Eden Reforestation Project.

Staff will receive an email from the survey administrators People Insight containing a unique link to access the survey. The email will come from survey-invite@peopleinsight.co.uk.

This survey is confidential. People Insight, our external partner, will hold your individual responses and this information will not be released to the University of Nottingham or elsewhere.

People Insight will use all data for statistical and research purposes and the university will be provided with team-level summary reports. This is in line with People Insight’s policies, which are carefully designed to ensure your confidentiality is protected.

There are a number of questions for respondents to consider, covering areas such as:

  • Is your role clear? Has someone explained it to you?
  • Do you have access to the tools and equipment necessary to do your job?
  • Do you get regular recognition of the work you do?
  • Does someone take an interest in your personal development, career and wellbeing?

It is important that as many colleagues as possible participate in the survey, offering honest and balanced feedback, so that we can build on what works and change things where they are not working.

The responses will also be used to assess our progress against the People and Culture Strategic Delivery Plan.

Initial results will be reported to the University Executive Board in June, with School and Department-level results expected to be shared in July.

Virtual workshops for line-managers

In conjunction with the People and Culture Survey, we are running a series of four virtual workshops aimed at line managers. The workshops will run every working day in May, so there are plenty of times to choose from. The first three workshops will be one hour in length and the fourth will be 90 minutes.

As well as covering various management tools and models, the workshops will help managers to analyse the data gathered from the People and Culture Survey and develop realistic action plans.
