Make a difference – take part in the staff survey

Help us help you…

As this challenging year continues, understanding what can be done to make working life as comfortable as possible is more important to us than ever.

And one way you can help is to make your views known in the annual staff survey, before the end of the month.

Last year, a record 85 per cent of you took the time to give your views and as a result of this we have been able to make changes in a number of areas.

One of our priorities in these increasingly difficult times, both personally and professionally, has been to address the vital issue of your health and wellbeing.

Among the steps taken, following on from the 2019 survey, is the CCG’s pledge and commitment to the Time to Change programme, which aims to change the attitudes towards mental health in the workplace. We have also started recruiting mental health champions to support staff across the organisation.

Health and wellbeing also remains one of the main priorities of the Staff Partnership Group, remaining on the agenda at every monthly meeting.

Among the areas identified as needing improvement in last year’s survey were concerns about bullying, harassment, abuse and discrimination.

Last year 19 per cent of staff were still reporting they had experienced bullying or abuse form other colleagues.

Since then, the CCG has recruited more Freedom to Speak Up Champions to help support anyone who might otherwise not have the courage or guidance to do so. We’ve also made Stamp out bullying and harassment training mandatory for all staff.

In addition, we’ve set up a BAME network as a result of listening to your responses. Your views matter and can make a real difference.

The survey is open until Friday 27 November. If you’ve not received it, having double checked your Junk folder, contact the Comms team.
