Staff Survey 2018

A message from the Vice-Chancellor

Dear colleagues

I wanted to thank you again for taking part in our Staff Survey earlier this year. I was encouraged to see so many of you sharing your experience of working here at Bristol: over 4,000 staff completed the survey.

Your responses are very important to me. They highlight areas where we need to improve, as well as those where we can celebrate best practice.


Capita, the external consultants who ran the survey and are processing the results, have shared their first indications of areas that need particular focus. Take a look at the Staff Survey 2018 Results video for an explanation of the findings.

Next steps

The survey also included a good deal of positive staff feedback, and I want to recognise your hard work across the institution – but we know there is still further work to be done. My team and I have agreed that staff engagement is a top priority over the next academic year.

I have asked each faculty and division to nominate a lead representative to be involved in the roll-out of our results, with the support of both the senior team and our Staff Experience Group. We are also be holding open 'town hall' meetings to hear more of your views, and to develop an action plan based on your feedback.

I look forward to continuing this important conversation together.

Best wishes

Hugh Brady
Vice-Chancellor and President
