Positive workplace picture from Staff Survey results

March 8, 2024
Our Trust’s Staff Survey results were released yesterday, reflecting the positive outlook of colleagues working for the organisation.

Chief Executive Douglas Blair said: “Overall, we have had an improved response rate and the results we can compare showed improvements in many areas. We also continue to compare favourably to other, similar Trusts, which is very encouraging.

“However, we still have some way to go and the results highlighted areas that we’d like to work on in the coming year. Those include health and wellbeing, support for internationally educated nurses and flexible working.

“It’s extremely positive to see that so many colleagues chose to take part in the survey this year as everyone’s contribution is vital to make our Trust a great place to work.”

The response rate for the Staff Survey at the Trust was at 58%, up from 55% last year and 53% in 2021.

Results from the survey are grouped into ‘Themes’ based on the NHS People Promise and used to generate a score from 1 to 10 in each. Our Trust was equal or better than the average for Mental Health, Learning Disability and Community Trusts in every Theme.

We also saw a year-on-year decrease in the number of colleagues looking for a job outside the Trust and an increase in the number of colleagues who would recommend the Trust as a place to work.

  • Note that the Survey Coordination Centre is reviewing elements of the data in the ‘We are Safe and Healthy’ People Promise Category for all Trusts. This score, and the comparisons, are therefore still subject to review. We will provide an update should anything change.
