Great leadership starts with listening
Motivated, fulfilled teachers are wonderful ambassadors for your school, and a support and inspiration to the students they teach. Your non-teaching staff are invaluable in ensuring everything runs smoothly to enable teachers to focus on what they do best.
We are committed to re-energising the education sector by working with senior leadership teams who wish to understand and support their employees. We work with schools by supporting headteachers to improve workplace dynamics and employee well-being.
Listen Act Inspire
Employee surveys are one of the easiest and most accurate ways to obtain actionable insights that can help you to improve your working environment and show you are committed to making your school a nurturing, supportive community for students and staff alike.
Above all, it shows you listen and care. Leaders who actively listen and care have far greater success in inspiring, motivating, and retaining employees, leading to richer school life for your students.
All our surveys are confidential and anonymous, giving your staff the trust and freedom, to be frank and honest in their responses so that you can understand the clear positives, suggestions for improvement and potential concerns in your school, and how best to approach them in a way that provides recognition and support.
Well-being surveys are particularly useful in the current climate for teaching staff who have been stretched beyond their limits due to the pandemic and may be suffering from stress, exhaustion, or anxiety. By asking your staff about themselves and their working life, you are showing you genuinely care about them and the students whose lives they affect.

We design surveys to explore individuals' comments in detail and invest our time in comprehensive analysis to provide you with hugely valuable insights. Together, we will identify exactly what well-being support and initiatives will be most effective for your staff in your school.
