Our Talkback – about your leaders survey is being extended to Monday 24 September (9am) so don’t miss your chance to have your say.
The survey focuses on how you feel about your manager, as we know this is crucial to how you feel about working here. Leaders at all levels will receive feedback as a result of the survey.
The survey is completely confidential and handled by our external partner, so please be open and honest in your responses.
Only managers with teams of five or more will get individual reports, so your individual responses won’t be seen by anyone at Co-op (smaller teams will wrap-up into your manager’s manager).
Your invite has gone to the email address you registered in MyHR. If you haven’t had one don’t worry (although do check your email details in MyHR) you can also visit coop.co.uk/talkback and enter your employee number to complete it.
A note on your feedback so far
Some colleagues have expressed concerns about using their employee number and asked why we’ve changed this. Previously we manually created thousands of team codes and there were some challenges with this.
The confidentiality of the survey is something we and our survey company take extremely seriously. The majority of large organisations use employee numbers, and tie the results back to a team by HR data.
This is done by a third party to protect confidentiality. No-one at Co-op can ever see individual responses. If you’ve been concerned about entering your details then please be assured of confidentiality and don’t miss your chance to have your say.
We know that some of you missed the open comments box this time around. When we do our all-colleague survey next year, we’ll bring this back.
You’ve also told us you wanted to have the opportunity to comment more on senior leaders. We’ve asked questions about this is the past and the feedback was that you didn’t know exactly who you should be answering the questions about, which makes it hard to work with the results.
By focusing on line managers, every single leader gets feedback, but we’ll work with our Colleague Voice forum to see how we can get around this challenge.
Thank you for your time and making our Co-op a great place to work.
