HSE staff survey results due this month

23 Jan 2017

The HSE is planning to share shortly with its healthcare staff detailed reports on their views and opinions about what it is like to work in the Irish health services, obtained in the confidential Your Opinion Counts Health Sector Staff Survey 2016.

The Executive believes the feedback will be an invaluable tool in helping its mission to build a better health sector for the staff and service users.

Thanking its staff for participating in the survey, and its local survey champions and their HR and Communications colleagues who were actively involved in encouraging staff to be involved, the Executive revealed that the next reports would be delivered during a series of workshops this month to groups within the health sector, including the Hospital Groups and Community Health Organisations.

“Workshops are being planned to discuss the findings and how we can best respond to them taking account of each individual area’s needs.”

This follows an overview of the results that was due to be presented to the HSE Leadership Team last month, outlining the main findings as well as the total number of staff who participated.

In the survey, staff were asked questions on a range of themes concerning them directly, including: job satisfaction; their role; organisation; communication; senior and local management; training and development; equality, diversity and inclusion; and health and well-being.

A priority action for the Health Service People Strategy 2015-2018 is to conduct staff surveys to ensure that the voice of staff is heard.

The survey was conducted on behalf of the health sector by independent market research/polling company, Ipsos MRBI, which has compiled the results.
