Over the past few months we’ve secured a number of new business wins. We’re delighted to have just delivered a global change survey for pharmaceutical giant, Boehringer Ingelheim. The survey was made available to over 50,000 employees in 18 languages.

Another big win is engineering support specialists, Babcock. This was a global engagement survey, translated into several languages, to Land Sector’s 12,000 employees. We’ve also picked up contracts with English National Opera and global healthcare communications agency, emotive, and Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network.

Also, we are working with Horizon Discovery, a world leading gene editing company as well as Astea Academy Trust a multi-academy trust spanning from Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire. Finally, we have also just delivered SAGlobal’s first ever engagement survey, they are a Microsoft Dynamics worldwide partner.

Here’s Ralph!

What’s Your Biggest Inspiration:

I admire the British bulldog spirit of the likes of Winston Churchill, Guy Gibson, Douglas Bader, Roger Bannister and Bobby Moore. Also Stephen Hawking for teaching us not to give up – having been told he had two years to live as a young man in the early 60s he stayed with us for more than 50 years. What a genius – and able to laugh at himself too (his Monty Python sketch with Brian Cox).

Biggest achievement:

One wouldn’t want to blow one’s own trumpet!

I’ve been doing this since 1980 and in that time I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great people (both clients and colleagues). Some have been less so – you know who you are!

What do you bring to the world of employee research:

I’d like to think experience, passion and a ‘can do’ attitude. I believe in keeping it simple. It’s great to talk to people, to find and what they need and … read more »

Thought leader pieces

March 27th, 2018 by Alison McKinney | No Responses

At The Survey Initiative our Directors often write thought leadership pieces for the national media.

Here’s a piece Gary Cattermole, recently put together which discusses HRs role in attracting the best brains, talent and skill to ensure their organisation can compete against the finest companies in the world. However, are HRs in danger of overselling a role to entice top talent?

Are you as good as your job ads?

HRs are tasked at attracting the best brains, talent and skill to ensure their organisation can compete against the finest companies in the world. However, are HRs in danger of overselling a role to entice top talent?

It’s a common problem, a company’s board demand top talent to fulfil its positions and naturally assign their HR team to recruit the crème de la crème. HRs scurry back to their departments and give their ads the ‘marketing bling’ to attract employees to their organisation.

But does overselling, or painting too pretty a picture really work? Employees may already have … read more »

We’re delighted that our work in partnership with soft drinks giant, Vimto, has been shortlisted for the Chartered Institute of Public Relations CIPR Pride Awards (Anglia, Thames and Chiltern) for Best Internal Communications Campaign.

We’ve been working with Vimto for three years and have helped the company achieve incredibly high levels of employee engagement, as well as supporting the company in the development of its values. Lynne Poole, Head of Human Resources, Vimto, explains: “We have always prided ourselves on being a great place to work. Thanks to The Survey Initiative we have been able to pinpoint areas we can become even better at. To this end we embarked on a consultation with our employees where the company values were created from the bottom-up and have been completely embraced by all.”

Since 2015 we’ve continued to work in partnership with Vimto to gauge their employees’ views on their workplace and the results have been amazing.  Gary Cattermole, Director, The Survey … read more »
