Employee Experience and Engagement
At Queen's, we want to create a great working environment and support all of our employees to have the best possible experience at work.
The employee experience refes to all of the interactions an individual has with their workplace, employer and colleagues throughout the various points of their working life. This starts during the recruitment process and continues throughout their time at the University and until the point they leave employment. Ensuring a good experience at work will in turn enable greater degree of employee engagement
Engage for Success define employee engagement as "a workplace approach resulting in the right conditions for all members of an organisation to give of their best each day, committed to their organisation’s goals and values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, with an enhanced sense of their own well-being.”
It is important to embrace the core University values, ICARE, and develop strong workplace relationships that are based on mutual trust. One of the key means of achieving this at Queen's is to provide opportunities for our staff to have their say on matters in the workplace that are important to them. By listening to the experiences of our people and taking action based on what we have heard, we can build trust and ensure the employee experience at Queen's is the best it can be. There are many opportunities for staff to have their say at Queen's. The most prominent at an institutional levelare through our Staff Surveys and the Staff Forum.
