Morale among voluntary sector employees has risen significantly over the past year, initial findings from Third Sector’s annual survey of charity workers show.

Early results from Charity Pulse, which is run in conjunction with Birdsong Charity Consulting, reveal that the percentage of workers who think morale in their charity is high has risen from 31 per cent in 2013 to 44 per cent this year.

It is the largest percentage point rise in this category since the survey began in 2007.

Other emerging findings show that the proportion of people who would recommend their organisation as an employer has gone up by 10 percentage points to 66 per cent over the past year.

Other early findings are that 61 per cent think the chief executive of their organisation is paid about the right amount. Twenty-one per cent think their pay is too high; 18 per cent think it is too low.

Voluntary sector employees have until 11 April to take part in the survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete.

People can participate anonymously or leave their details to be entered into a draw from which one winner will receive three free coaching sessions with Birdsong.
