The staff survey closes on Friday 17 November.

Completing the survey

In order to complete the survey you will need the email sent to you by Capita. If you're having trouble finding it in your inbox, it is sent from and is titled University of Leicester staff survey 2017 - help us all see the big picture. The email contains the link to the survey and an anonymous unique code. This is administered by Capita to ensure that your responses remain anonymous. If you have not received an email from Capita, please email and we will arrange for this to be sent to you.

Charity donations

Once again, for every member of staff that completes the staff survey, we will donate £1 to a charity of your choice.  The four 2017 charities are all linked to our University and details of them can be found here.

Recap of the Staff Survey 2016

We found that the majority of staff felt our University was a good place to work (86%) and were trusted to get on with their job (91%). But this wasn’t just about highlighting what was good. Here are some examples of changes we have made as a result of feedback from the 2016 survey;

  • Our internal communications needed attention, and so in the past 12 months we have launched the new Leicester in Focus videos, updated staff Insider, launched  the ULT Live and Breakfast with the VC.
  • Staff told us that we needed to do more to support the wellbeing and motivation of staff. We held a wellbeing week in June, a range of events for example, ‘know your numbers’ week commissioned a new independent counselling and information service which is available 24/7 and launched a staff benefits portal.
  • Many staff also told us that they had not had an appraisal. We committed to improving this and the number of people having a performance development discussion has risen dramatically, but of course there is still work to do and this is a continuous process.
