Survey: impact of COVID-19 on professional services staff in UK universities

With colleagues from the University of Bristol and Swansea University, and building on our recent work in this space, we are investigating the impact of COVID-19 on the welfare, health and wellbeing of professional services staff working in UK universities. Further to a developing corpus of work in this space (for example, this paper), it is clear the primary focus of empirical studies has been on academic staff and students; therefore, this study is intended to address this gap and identify how transitioning to remote working practices — and wider systemic challenges of COVID-19 — have and are continuing to affect professional services staff. It is part of a wider Worldwide Universities Network (WUN)-funded project exploring the impact of COVID-19 on higher education working lives.

Please complete our anonymous survey: you will be asked about the impact of COVID-19 on your professional service roles and responsibilities; any changes to your workload, management and relationships; as well as how this has impacted upon your welfare, health and wellbeing:

(c.10 mins completion time, please share through your UK professional networks; the survey will close at midnight, Tuesday 11 May 2021)
