Staff engagement & wellbeing

We offer two services specifically designed to improve your organisation’s work culture and boost staff morale:

Positive Workplace Survey

Our Positive Workplace Survey is a sector specific tool designed to identify what your staff value about their work, as well as any underlying issues that can get in the way of effective performance.

What are the benefits?

By ‘taking the temperature’ and learning about the specific needs of your staff, you are best placed to make sure that your workplace culture is positive.This helps retain staff and keeps them engaged and excited to be a part of your team.

Key benefits include:

  • unearthing of underlying issues of concern from your staff
  • increased staff retention
  • improved morale and working relationships
  • improved change management
  • increased productivity and performance
  • develops a problem-solving culture
  • increased effectiveness and performance

  • meets your duty of care and spot problems as they develop
  • improved student outcomes (the result of happier staff) 

How does it work?

All members of staff complete a confidential online survey that comprehensively measures their views on what it’s like to work in your organisation.

We analyse the data into common themes to help you see where your organisation’s strengths are and what needs improvement. Along with your data, we send you a guide on how to best understand your data outcomes and advice on how to share the outcomes with your staff. We can also arrange for one of our expert consultants to come and deliver the results at your school as an add-on to your Survey.

You have the option to add bespoke elements to your survey, so whether you have recently had a restructure, have just become an academy, or you would like to find out what a certain section of your staff thinks, we can accommodate your needs.
