The survey says… 

Thanks tthose who took the time to complete our reps’ survey late last year. We are using the results to ensure we keep doing the things that you like and fill the gaps where you have suggested improvementsSome quick headlines:

  • 84% believed that confidential reporting complements their internal health, safety and wellbeing arrangements.
  • Over 95% said that a confidential reporting service should be impartial, focus on improvement and not apportion blame.  

You told us that you welcome our efforts to share report data, case studies and good practice, and would like us to continue with this. You also suggested we could improve our digital resources, use of social media, and how we share learning so it can be applied across different areas of your businesses. We’ll be working on these issues over the coming year, including improving our website and social media content, refreshing our newsletters and creating new case studies.
