Staff Perception Report


DESIGNED FOR YOUR STAFF

Funders rely on their staff every day to make the decisions that create impact. Staff set goals, strategy, and represent your work to grantees and other stakeholders. As a result, building an effective and engaged staff culture is crucial.

The Staff Perception Report (SPR) is a fast, cost-effective, and easy-to-implement employee survey designed specifically for philanthropic funders to gather actionable feedback from their staff. CEP offers a shorter, core version of the SPR, along with a more comprehensive option to provide the most flexibility for funders.

Through CEP’s dedicated focus on foundation effectiveness, we help you gather, understand, and act on staff input in ways that connect directly to your effectiveness as a funder. The experience of staff working in philanthropy is unique, and requires a survey that accounts for your context.
