Our Staff Forum was established in June 2018 in response to feedback from staff in the 2016 Staff Survey that there needed to be more opportunities to make their voices heard. Made up of representatives from each School, Directorate and GRI from across Queen's, this group represents all of our people and provides the opportunity for everyone working here to share their views on all aspects of working at Queen's and to help shape the employee experience and make a real difference for all who work here.
The purpose of the Staff Forum is:
To ensure all staff at Queen’s have a representative through which they can express their voice, providing meaningful feedback about relevant workplace issues and to create an open, inclusive space to work collaboratively to influence action planning and to affect positive change to the Employee Experience
Since it's inception in 2018, the Forum has been instrumental in gathering the feedback that has shaped the Appraisal review, launch of PDR and Academic Progression, and informed the work of the Professional Services Career Progression Working Group. Forum members also worked to support our 2019 Staff Engagement Survey and the first Staff Pulse Survey in 2021, gathering further feedback to help create Institutional Action Plans and inform the actions taken.
The short video below showcases some of our members talking about the work of the Staff Forum and their experience being part of it.
