Your feedback in action

This is the third time we will administer the UK@Work survey. Your feedback has led to university-wide changes, such as:

Flexible work

Increased guidelines and supervisor support for workplace flexibility.

Mental well-being

Additional therapists for employee counseling.

Financial well-being

Financial well-being counseling.

Physical well-being

An employee-dedicated fitness facility, reduced-cost Fitbits and more.


Reliable and consistent merit increases for seven straight years.


University-level results will be available later this fall. Administrative and academic units can expect to receive results by January 2020.

Your responses are strictly confidential. No one within the University will ever know how or whether you respond. Willis Towers Watson will provide themes based on overall comments and feedback.
