You may have noticed in passing in K2-news, or in the meeting notice I forwarded? This week marked the start of the work and climate survey (ARK) at UiB.
The last time we responded to ARK was in 2019. At that time, the survey was conducted for a few units only. This time, the entire UiB will implement ARK at the same time. There have also been digital kick-off meetings under the direction of MEDFAK this week, both in Norwegian and English. On Monday 08/03, all our employees in a 20% position or more received an e-mail with an individual link to the questionnaire. I hope you all will take the time to go through the form.
When the corona shutdown started exactly one year ago, K2 had two smaller, local surveys about how you all were coping with the restrictions. The surveys were anonymous, and I read through all the feedback we received. The feedback was direct and honest, positive as well as negative, and these are exactly the kind of feedback we need to be able to work with what works and does not work in our work environment. ARK is a new opportunity to give us input on what we can do better and what works well. The working environment at K2 is valuable for all of us, and it is well worth spending 15 minutes on.
The deadline for responses is March 29, but why wait? The results are ready in mid-April, and the first follow-up meeting is already scheduled for 21 April.
Thank you for caring about our work environment and for taking the time to respond to ARK.
Many greetings from Julie
