DECLARATION(S) OF INTEREST
There were no declarations of interest.
Survey Manager and the Sheffield Business Manager presented SCT with the Staff Survey and Focus Groups Results respectively.
The Staff Survey went live on the SYP intranet in March 2012 for all staff to complete. Additionally, to complement the survey findings, employees were randomly selected and invited to attend Focus Groups in July 2012 where they had the opportunity to say what they thought.
Analysis of the survey results and focus group data is still ongoing but key and preliminary findings of the staff survey and focus groups was presented and discussed. SCT looked at recommendations and considered next steps with a view of working towards a final set of actions to deal with the issues raised. This included considering the establishment of a Staff Engagement Board to oversee the current workstreams and manage future recommendations/actions that result from the full analysis of the staff survey by channelling them through the appropriate forums.
SCT decided to take this to QRD to share and hold further discussions with senior management about the direction and future of the survey before the results are presented and discussed at Police Authority. This would also allow sufficient time for staff to be informed of the survey results, recommendations and subsequent action updates.
ACTION – This item to be placed on the QRD agenda for next Monday (SCT Office Manager) and CC to speak to the Interim Chief Executive about deferring the paper for the Police Authority.
