Have you answered the latest question of the month?

October’s QOTM results

In October 2015 we asked whether your line manager inspired confidence and trust. We received over 190 responses and the highlights were:

  • Overall 57.9% of the responses voted ‘yes’ their line manager inspires confidence and trust.
  • In the Faculty of Science & Health, 75% of the votes were ‘yes’, followed by the Faculty of Social Sciences with 69.2% ‘yes’ votes and Professional Services staff voting 56.1% positively.
  • The Faculty of Humanities, Professional Services staff within a faculty/department and Campus Services all received 50% or lower ‘yes’ voters.

Feedback from the free text comments will be factored into an ongoing review of manager training and development opportunities at the University. This is a core element of the People Supporting Strategy which seeks to clarify the roles and responsibilities of those who are in leadership and management positions and establish a talent development programme for all members of the University.
