‘I belong to UJ’ – staff say

Date: Jun 13, 2013 | News


​The recent Culture Survey, conducted in September 2012, shows a growing sense of belonging among academic and support staff members at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), with 91 per cent of employees indicating pride in working for the Institution.​

 

Prof Derek van der Merwe, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Strategic Services, revealed the results of the 2012 survey this week. Prof van der Merwe went on campus tours to discuss the results with UJ employees.
Since 2008, the Culture Survey has been conducted every two years at UJ, and has showed a significant improvement each year with the following recurring themes: job satisfaction (employees not intending to look for employment elsewhere); management statements (such as “the work I do and the contribution I make is valued by my manager”); values and mission statements (such as “I know what the UJ values are”); UJ values and accommodates diversity of staff; UJ is committed to transformation; and that UJ is promotes fairness and equity.
Sixty four per cent of staff members who participated in the survey believed that “women are more likely to be promoted and/or appointed to more senior positions than men”, in comparison to 56 per cent in 2008.​​
