Welcome to Birdsong

People work best when they feel good about themselves, when they are enjoying their work, feeling motivated and appreciated. 

We help charities work more effectively with their people. We help them become thriving, vibrant organisations where people love to work.

At Birdsong we specialise in staff surveys, pulse surveys, trustee board surveys, organisational development and coaching.

Special offer for Charity Pulse 2021

This is already a tough year for so many organisations in the sector and helping your people to thrive has never been more important. Whether you want to gauge levels of morale or uncover areas in which staff engagement could be improved our Charity Pulse survey can help.
