Welcome to the Bangor University Staff Survey web pages.
The Staff Survey 2022 results are now in and will be published on these pages. We’re delighted that a high proportion of staff (58%) took the time to share their views about working for the University.
Here is a summary of the feedback received:
A strong sense of teamwork, having colleagues who pull together, a safe and secure working environment and having the trust and autonomy to carry out duties are some of the best aspects of working at Bangor University, according to what you told us.
Held every two years, the results for our 2022 Staff Survey on the whole compare favourably with the last survey, which was held just before the pandemic in 2020. This includes 40% of benchmarkable questions being at least five percentage points greater than the comparison and 50% in line with 2020.
Three-quarters of staff say they feel proud to work for the University, an increase since 2020. Similarly, almost seven in ten would recommend the University as a place of work.
Trust was a common theme that performed well: with 88% of staff feeling trusted to do their job, and trust in the University’s leadership being the area which saw the largest improvement since 2020.
Relationships between staff and management was also positive, as 88% say their team leader or supervisor is approachable, and 84% agree they can decide on their own how to go about doing their work. These statistics contribute to making staff feel safe and secure in their working environment (83% agree), one of the strongest positive aspects of working for the institution.
In a clear indication of staff’s support for Sustainability, which underpins our Strategy 2030, 84% of colleagues say they are willing to change aspects of their professional life to be more sustainable.
Support for the Welsh language and Equality and Diversity also ranked highly.
While the overall results are encouraging, a number of areas were identified where improvements could be made, including workload, a lack of resources, feeling valued, worrying about work outside working hours and priorities changing too quickly.
In response to this feedback and in line with the University’s commitment towards staff health and wellbeing, the issues identified will be addressed by reviewing the data at a College, School and Departmental level and building action plans to take forward.
