Staff Survey Results
The 2014 National Staff Survey Results were published
on 24 February.
The results show areas of significant concern which we need to
focus on to make AWP a better place to work.
However, the results also show that change is possible when we
make a targeted effort. For example over the past year:
- 91% staff received an appraisal
- 79% staff received health and safety training
- 68% staff received equality and diversity training
- 70% staff agreed they feel secure to raise concerns about
unsafe clinical practice. This finding is particularly positive in
the light of the recent Freedom to Speak Up
Iain Tulley, Chief Executive says,
"Whilst it's difficult to read in black and white that so many
of our colleagues would not recommend AWP as a place to work or
receive treatment, we have developed a radical development program
designed to deliver the necessary improvements".
To tackle the areas of concern and to make AWP a good place to
work, the Trust is making the following improvements:
- A new team-based working approach for all staff, to enable them
to work smarter and support each other better.
- Training for managers to improve their practical skills and
gain a greater understanding of their responsibilities.
- The launch of a robust Bullying and Harassment Policy, to
encourage staff to report concerns about safety or safeguarding and
to improve the culture and environment for staff and service
- A focus on localities and addressing in depth the
messages given by staff on staffing levels, time to care and
management visibility and support.
The improvement in results in some areas since 2013 suggests
that the Trust can make effective changes and this will continue to
be built upon.
