WPA on the way: Follow the process at ST

Preparations for the upcoming workplace assessment (WPA) are in full swing around the university. And ST is no exception, with a local website, advisory group and timetable for the process already established.

At the beginning of the New Year, we will again be evaluating the working environment at AU. This time, employees will have to evaluate the psychological working environment and physical working environment in one questionnaire during the period from 25 February to 13 March 2019.

The survey has the same questionnaire for the whole university. Each faculty has suggested its own faculty-specific questions as part of the WPA questionnaire. ST will have the same supplementary questions as in the latest WPA in 2015/16. The supplementary questions include questions about actual number of working hours and agreed working hours, and about cooperation between departments/centres, and between academic environments and the administrative centre.

Departments and centres as well as FAMU, FSU and the faculty management team at ST have been involved in the decision-making process for the faculty-specific questions.

Experienced advisory group

There is an advisory group at ST with nine members representing both management and employees. The group was set up by the Faculty Liaison Committee (FSU) and the occupational health and safety committee (FAMU). The WPA advisory group has the task of coordinating and communicating the faculty’s process, so that employees, managers, the occupational health and safety organisation and the liaison committee organisation are involved in the process in the best possible way.

The chairman of the advisory group: Jørgen B. Jespersen and several of the other members also sat in the advisory group under the psychological WPA 2015/16, so experienced people will be monitoring the WPA over the next three years.
