Happy in your work? Take the Charity Pulse 2015 staff survey

The annual poll, run by Third Sector and Birdsong Charity Consulting, gives staff the chance to rate their workplaces and managers

Third Sector is calling on readers to share their experiences of working in the voluntary sector by taking part in this year’s Charity Pulse survey.

The annual survey is run by Third Sector in conjunction with Birdsong Charity Consulting, and gives staff the chance to rate their workplaces and managers.

This year’s study, which takes only about 10 minutes to complete, will have a particular focus on wellbeing and will ask if charities are creating happy and healthy workplaces for their staff.  

Last year’s study found that morale had increased among charity staff, but many respondents felt that senior management teams were more focused on external issues than on the internal working practices of their charities.

Respondents can participate anonymously or leave their details for a chance to win three free coaching sessions with Birdsong or vouchers worth £100 from the online retailer Ethicalsuperstore.com.

Frances Hurst, co-founder of Birdsong, said: "We wanted to focus on wellbeing this year because charities are starting to think about initiatives in this area – but what do charity staff really want? What is most important to them? How can charities best help their people to stay happy and healthy?"
