LUU is a big place with a whole host of services on offer but essentially we are all working towards the same goal - to ensure everyone loves their time at Leeds. That’s why we think that all our people should know what’s going on in all areas of the union. We are always looking for ways to communicate across the organisation and we recognise the importance of hearing the voice of all our people.
Staff Voice Group
This is LUU’s new way of making sure your voice is heard.
The Staff Voice Group is a group of staff representatives who come together to receive info on key organisational matters, as well as provide feedback to LUU. This will be on a wide range of things such as; new processes and systems, updates to staff policies, new initiatives, organisational changes and spending decisions in relation to the staff engagement budget. The reps will meet three times a year with Harpreet Singh, our Director of People and Quality, Rachel Winfield, our Head of Employee Experience and Carla Thompson our HR Officer (Diversity and Engagement).
Staff Voice is a platform for colleagues across the organisation to have their say. We ask that Team Leaders, SMG and SLT do not put themselves forward as staff voice reps, and instead present their feedback at Leadership Meetings.

Staff Suggestion Scheme
This is how it works...
1. How can we improve LUU? You suggest a new, creative, innovative idea.
2. We send that suggestion to the relevant member of staff for their thoughts.
3. If we can, we implement the idea, we tell you and you win £20 in vouchers.
4. If we can't implement the idea or we already do it then we tell you why.
Easy as that.
You can submit your ideas using this form.
Successful suggestions from the past 6 months include;
Printers available for students to use in LUU
An informative sign for the Chilean Mural outside the office it is in
Displaying subtitles at the top of screens in the foyer for easier accessibility
Oven gloves for using the microwave in the staff kitchen
Soya milk alternative in the staff kitchen
Hooks on the back of doors where there are baby changing facilities
You may have other requests which aren't necessarily a new idea, and wouldn't be counted as a staff suggestion. These are still useful for us to know, so here's the channels you can use
You might notice something that needs repairing or cleaning - you can submit a ticket to our Cleaning, Building Maintenance or the rest of the Facilities Team using Facilities Tickets
Or signage that needs updating - you can send in a Request Brief to the Marketing Team
You may be experiencing an IT problem - you can contact our helpful IT Team via the IT Helpdesk
Any other requests you're not sure of - contact the People Team , email@example.com, who will be happy to help you
