Have Your Say

Welcome to the Staff Experience Survey 2021 webpage, where you will find guidance about how to participate and information about what you can expect from this year’s survey.

The University has run a biennial survey since 2016 (this year’s survey was due to take place in 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic). This time around we have brought in a third party provider, People Insight, to run the survey. This brings several advantages, including enhanced data protection - all survey responses will go directly to them and be deidentified before any data is shared with us – as well as a simpler, more streamlined process to analyse and release the results, in turn enabling these to be acted on in a timely manner.

We are mindful that uncertainties over the pandemic pose challenges for any survey at this time. However, we also think that the circumstances of the last year make it more important than ever to gain insight from you about your experience of working here – what you value and what you would like to see improved.

We hope that you will take the time to respond to the survey. What you tell us will be used to help us build on our successes and shape plans to ensure that Oxford remains an attractive place to work. In turn, this will support our overall academic mission and our long-term success as an institution.

As we approach the 27 April launch date, look out for updates via email, on the Staff Gateway and in the University Bulletin. An invitation to participate in the survey will be sent direct to your inbox.
