Is staff wellbeing at the top of your resolution list?

New year, new you. But, as a school leader should you make resolutions for your school, and if so, what should they be.

Is staff wellbeing at the top of your 2020 resolution list?

As a headteacher what are your new year resolutions for your school? Is staff happiness and wellbeing at the top of the list?

The key to getting your new years’ resolutions for your school right is to understand what your staff need. That being said, do you know what your staff want and need? Do you know which areas at your schools are a cause for concern? What are your staff stressed about? What could cause them to hand in their notice? 

Top of your list should be to give your staff a voice. Let them tell you how they feel and what problems they are facing. Effective communication can have a strong impact on staff engagement and create a sense of belonging. 

With Staff Pulse you can send weekly or bi-weekly engagement surveys to anonymously capture how your staff are feeling. We’ve also added a new feature, action plans – where you can dig deeper enabling you to focus on the areas you need to improve, as identified by your staff.

How do action plans work?

From the engagement survey results, you can identify categories and areas of concern. You can then email your staff to ask how this area of concern could be improved. Staff can then anonymously provide ideas and recommendations. 

Any action plans success can be monitored through tracking the anonymous feedback for the specific area of concern. You'll be able to see the positive effect your plan is having in real time.
