Staff surveys

An annual staff survey is a powerful way to keep in touch with what your people are thinking and feeling.

Birdsong is an established and trusted provider of staff surveys. Each year we run surveys for over 60 different charities – large and small – helping them to improve their staff satisfaction and engagement. Our clients appreciate the personal service, quick turnarounds and clear reporting that Birdsong provides. They also value the insights they get from comparing their results with our Charity Pulse benchmark data.

We have developed a range of staff surveys to help charity leaders and HR professionals to gather the honest opinions of their staff.

Our surveys can also accommodate volunteers – or we can design surveys specifically for them.

We offer charities a range of staff survey services, tailored to meet different needs and budgets. Whether you want to uncover the cause of low morale or to increase staff engagement, our benchmarked surveys can help.

At the core of our approach is Charity Pulse, a voluntary sector staff satisfaction survey developed by Birdsong. The survey probes the issues that matter most to charity staff through a set of carefully crafted questions. More…

We run an annual satisfaction survey for hospices, in conjunction with Hospice UK. Each year, usually in the spring and early summer, a group of hospices take the survey. Each hospice receives a benchmarked report that compares its results with the other hospices in our specialised All Hospices benchmark. Hospices can also take the survey outside of this time and receive the same comparison report.

As well as producing quantitative reports, Birdsong can also help to interpret your survey results, providing recommendations and advice. We can work directly with your organisation to help prioritise the actions you want to take as a result of the survey.
