Employee satisfaction survey

Every three years, Umeå University conducts an employee satisfaction survey to provide each department, office or other unit with an overview of how their staff feel about their work, and to gain an understanding of the strengths and shortcomings in the organisation.

Together, we safeguard a healthy work environment on equal terms, where all members of staff can thrive and prosper.
