The search is under way to find out how firms are working with staff to ensure their success as employers.
Pure and eras Ltd have launched the free Best Employer Eastern Region survey (BEER), which is open to organisations until July.
Taking place every other year, the free survey concludes with tailored employer reports and the Best Employer awards in October. Normally worth around £2,000, the confidential staff survey seeks to capture honest opinions about how staff feel about working for their organisations. It provides employers with an opportunity to develop corporate culture, and workplace practises and environment, to benefit both employees and business.

Lynn Walters, director of Pure, which is also sponsoring the forthcoming EDP Business Awards best employer category, said: “Asking your staff to take part in a survey is absolutely essential in enabling your business to develop successfully.
“The results help you identify the adjustments you need to make, in order to increase employee engagement, which is proven to boost productivity, increase customer satisfaction, reduce absenteeism and improve profitability.
“Not only that, but the survey produces benchmark data, which enables you to compare your standing against similar employers in Norfolk, and across the East of England. This is critical in terms of knowing what to do to retain staff, especially now the job market is picking up.”
The 15-minute online survey is suitable for organisations of all sizes in the private and not-for-profit sectors. Survey data and results are 100% confidential.
