Places for People chooses The Survey Initiative to deliver its employee engagement survey

Employee engagement research specialists chosen

We are delighted to announce that Places for People has chosen us to work alongside them in the delivery of their ongoing employee engagement survey.

With in excess of 60,000 homes, 13 businesses, c 3000 staff and assets of over £3 billion, it is vital that UK property management, development and regeneration group Places for People has the most engaged workforce possible. Its people are its lifeblood, and it works hard to look after them; employee engagement is key.

Places for People chose us from a shortlist of three research specialists, believing that it had many shared corporate and cultural values. Liz Sharrocks, Places for People’s Employee Engagement Advisor explains:

“We felt that the team at The Survey Initiative had many shared values with Places for People, and we particularly liked the bespoke approach they took to our needs. They have a closely-knit team and we were impressed by their enthusiasm and can-do attitude”.

Rejecting the one-size fits all employee engagement survey approach

By working with us Places for People sees a marked shift away from using more generic tools to measure employee engagement to a fully-tailored approach – the survey process will be moulded exactly to Places for People’s needs.

David Cowans, Group Chief Executive at Places for People and the Group’s employee engagement project sponsor, said: “Working in partnership with The Survey Initiative gives us the opportunity to develop a tailor-made survey, and involve staff in its design. This way we will gather the views of our staff about the things that really matter to them in a way that can then guide action.”

We’re delighted to be working alongside Places for People and the team and look forward to an exciting and productive project.
