The Staff Survey

LSE ran a staff survey from mid-November until mid-December 2015. The survey results were published in February 2016. The final school action plan is available to download here [PDF].

Professor Julia Black, Interim Director, and Andrew Young, COO, are leading the staff survey steering group to ensure we remain on track and all actions are implemented.
