Wellbeing at work: workplace audits

Members of the NASUWT are able to self-assess their wellbeing at work using the Union’s online Wellbeing at Work facility.

The Union offers National Executive Members (NEMs), Local Secretaries and Accredited Caseworkers a summary of the responses within a specific workplace. The PDF report will:

(i) identify areas of common concern;
(ii) provide an anonymous evidence base of members views to present to school leaders.

To take advantage of this facility, please follow the procedure below:

  1. Ensure that the membership list for the school or college is up to date. NEMs, Local Secretaries and Accredited Caseworkers can review membership lists using the Union’s e-membership facility. It is essential that the list is accurate otherwise the audit report will be incomplete.
  2. Confirm the numeric Workplace Code from the e-membership system. Members must quote this as the "workplace code" when completing the survey.
  3. Determine whether you wish to invite non-members to take part.
  4. Encourage members at the school or college to complete the wellbeing questionnaire. Publicity for this must be arranged locally.
  5. Specify a start and finish date. We recommend allowing one or two weeks to complete the audit, ending on a Friday.
  6. Email wellbeing@mail.nasuwt.org.uk with the following information:
    • the name and address of the school or college where members will self-assess their wellbeing;
    • the period during which members will undertake their self-assessment.
    We will reply to confirm these details, and confirm the reference code - the NASUWT workplace code, as identified in step 2. Everyone completing the survey must include that reference code at question 1, we will use the reference to produce your report.

Summary wellbeing reports (see example report (PDF 66 KB)) will be generated as PDF documents on the first working day of each week, and sent via email.

The addition of this workplace audit facility adds a powerful organising tool for Executive Members, Local Secretaries and Accredited Caseworkers seeking to address issues within specific workplaces.
