The 2017 myVoice staff engagement survey is coming!  The survey will be open between 27 March and 7 April 2017 and will ask for your feedback on ACU as a place to work, and on a range of management practices.

The feedback you give through the myVoice survey helps inform future changes and improvements at ACU.  The myVoice survey has been held every few years since 2009, and measures how ACU is progressing over time.  The results also allow ACU to benchmark against other Universities, and against industry more broadly.

The stories below highlight how the University has listened to staff feedback and taken action with initiatives to improve ACU as a place to work, and to support strategic objectives.

Communication and collaboration

ACU Chief Operating Officer Stephen Weller says feedback from the last myVoice survey has been invaluable in identifying strengths as well as areas for improvement within the University.  “I encourage all staff at ACU to have their say in the 2017 myVoice survey to ensure that their views, and the views of their areas, are represented in the results and to contribute to informing improvements at ACU,” Dr Weller says.
