Staff Survey ‘Your Opinion Counts 2018’


The national Staff Engagement Survey, Your Opinion Counts, goes live on September 1 next.

The Survey is to be carried out across the Health Sector commencing from the first day of September. The Survey will be available at  from the Go Live date until the end of September.

This important survey is being conducted to assess current staff opinions in order to identify opportunities for improvement and builds on the work of the national staff surveys carried out in 2014 and 2016.

The survey will seek employees’ views on a range of themes concerning them directly, such as, culture and values, working environment, career progression and development, equality, diversity and inclusion, leadership direction and communications, staff engagement, managing change, terms and conditions and job satisfaction.

The results of the 2018 survey will be benchmarked against best practice and used to improve the working lives of staff, leading to better service for healthcare users and better care for patients.

The survey is being carried out by Ipsos MRBI, an independent research company, and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Your participation in the survey, together with your responses, will be completely confidential.

All staff within the Health Sector are being invited to participate and this will be your opportunity to get your voice heard and help shape the future.

It is widely recognised that staff who are fully engaged at work are better able to give their best to patients and service users so positive staff engagement is in all our interests.

Don’t miss your opportunity to participate.
