2017 has flown by and what a year it has been! Business has been booming at The Survey Initiative over the past 12 months with record new business wins. We were especially pleased to pick up contracts for Institute of Physics, Essex Cares Ltd, Mathematics in Education and Industry, and Intercede all of which have been a pleasure to work with and are dedicated to using the research we produce. We have continued our working relationship with Saint-Gobain, Boehringer Ingelheim and Babcock.
It’s also been an award-winning year for the team. In September we were very proud to receive a Silver CIPR Pride award for Internal Communication for our staff survey and employee engagement activity with leading soft drinks manufacturer, Vimto.

It’s been just over a year since we moved into our new purpose-designed offices in Wix, which were officially opened by Bernard Jenkin MP. Our move to Wix proved to be the best decision, as we’ve all thrived in this new location. We’re set in the heart of the beautiful Essex countryside, which really does offer space for our business to grow and gives us ample opportunity to go for an enlivening lunchtime ramble.
Of course, we’re committed to putting back into our community. Once again, we shall be working with the Woodland Trust to plant a new tree every time we receive a new referral. We’ll also be planting a number of trees instead of sending Christmas cards this year.
During 2017 we’ve supported our local community by offering work experience opportunities and enabling not-for-profit organisation, ‘This KiD Can’, to launch a new anti-bullying programme for 3-16 year olds. This KiD Can is a dynamic new organisation set-up to offer a series of martial arts, kick boxing and gymnastics sessions for youngsters to gain a strong skill base, opportunity for social interaction and to develop their confidence levels.
In 2018 we would like to engage in more ways to support young people in our local community and will be launching a new programme in the New Year, so please watch this space!
We’re also looking forward to the challenges that 2018 will bring and to help all HR practitioners we’re offering free-of-charge employee research consultations. Meet our gingerbread man to tell you more.
Happy Christmas everyone!
