The Staff Experience Survey is the main way in which the University collects feedback from staff members. Feedback from the survey influences departmental, divisional and institutional planning, helps us build on our successes and shape plans to ensure that Oxford is an attractive and inclusive place to work. In turn, this supports our overall academic mission and our long-term success as an institution.
58% (8980) of staff invited to take part shared their feedback in the 2023 Staff Experience Survey. The survey was conducted by an external company, People Insight and closed on 19 May 2023. Through the People Insight platform, we are able to compare our 2023 results with surveys from 2021 and 2018 enabling us to see important trends over time.
Since receiving the results of this year’s Staff Experience Survey in July 2023, the EDU project team, senior leadership, EDI colleagues and nominated staff with a business need to access the data have started to analyse the results. Carefully interpreting the data, they will continue to draw insight from the feedback shared by staff to understand the experience of working at the University and to inform change.
The EDU have created a brief narrative report and infographic to share an overview of the University’s results.
A range of tools and resources has been developed to support University-wide teams through the process of data analysis, presentation, communications and action planning. Please click here to access this toolkit:
The EDU will continue to provide regular updates on analysis of institutional results, priorities and how the data will inform existing University-wide workstreams, as well as provide support for action planning. As the data is analysed and socialised, Divisions and departments will be encouraged to identify their own priorities for action in line with local contexts.
