Each member of staff will be issued a unique survey link. This does not mean any individual is identifiable or that the responses provided can be traced back to them. Instead, it allows People Insight to link their responses to the existing demographic information about that individual based on a participant data file that we have provided. Information includes, for example, the department you work in or the number of years you have worked at Queen’s. This information is used to analyse results and detect trends in responses.
We do not ask for your name when responding, but do ask for some demographic information including dependants, disability, race/ethnic origin, gender and sexual orientation. This information is gathered because we know that certain factors can impact on the employee experience and your responses will help us to understand what factors influence a positive working experience at Queen’s.
Please be assured that all responses you provide are sent directly to People Insight and no member of Queen’s staff – including your line manager – will ever have access to those results. Survey results and data are only reported in aggregate groups and even if you are the only person who is of a particular age, in a particular role, in a particular department, the results and reports will not identify you. Instead, the results will be shown for example, by age across the organisation, or if there are enough returns, age and role, or by role in the department.
