The Survey was developed, analysed and reported on by Voice Project Pty Ltd at Macquarie University. To protect the confidentiality of the views of its staff members Flinders University used the external provider to whom all the responses were sent. No reports are provided where there were less than 10 respondents so that the confidentiality of the staff views is preserved. The last all staff survey was undertaken in 2006.

Organisational Level Reports

  • Executive Summary (PDF 132KB)
    This report outlines the results for the 2008 Flinders University Voice Climate Survey, which assesses multiple indicators of Flinders University's performance across a broad range of HR and general management practices. In addition, this report estimates the relative importance of these practices for maximising Passion (employee engagement) and Progress (bottom-line results). By analysing both performance and importance, a set of key priority areas have been identified to assist targeting of development initiatives.

    The report also offers additional insight into Flinders’ performance by providing historical, unit-level, organisational, and industry-level benchmarks. Specifically, performance is compared:
    • Between various organisational units within Flinders University
    • Against the Flinders University Your Voice 2006 Staff Survey results
    • Against 17 other Australian universities in our database
    • Against our normative database compiled from over 2000 organisations from a wide range of professions and industries broadly representing the Australian economy.
