CCER survey

Working conditions and careers of middle management at the University of Geneva

During the summer of 2021, the University of Geneva (UNIGE) carried out an in-depth survey on the working conditions and careers of its teaching and research staff (CCER). The results highlighted areas of satisfaction as well as a number of problem areas.

The survey conducted by the UNIGE was drawn up by the Rectorate after consultation with members of the CCER representative association ACCORDER, the University Assembly, the Personnel Commission and two experts in human resources management. It is based on a questionnaire comprising three distinct parts. The first part, which is very short, focuses on the career ambitions of CCER members and the attractiveness of CCER posts at the UNIGE; the second part looks in greater depth at seven themes linked to the professional framework; the third part seeks to objectify the risks impacting the development of academic careers.

The survey received 772 responses (20% of the target audience) to the short questionnaire, and 542 to all the questions. The distribution of respondents among the various Faculties and Centres correctly reflects their respective weightings.
