Staff Perception Report
The Only Staff Survey Designed Specifically for Foundations
Partner with CEP to gather candid feedback from your staff on topics that are crucial for your foundation’s impact. The SPR is the only staff survey designed specifically for the unique context of working in philanthropy, and it also puts your results in a comparative context with peer foundations. That’s the CEP difference.
Survey themes include:
SPR IN ACTION
The Commonwealth Fund talks about participating in their fifth SPR and how staff feedback has helped them work to become a high-performing workplace.
The Skillman Foundation describes the importance of workplace culture and regular feedback mechanisms.
New York State Health Foundation shares how they responded to their staff surveys and took the steps needed to improve.
The results provided comprehensive data about our culture and helped us to put it into context, relative to our peers. The CEP team partnered with us helping to customize and implement the survey, to understand the results and to determine concrete ways forward. We have done climate surveys in the past, but with CEP’s help both the experience and results were infinitely richer.
The Staff Perception Survey has had a huge impact on our Foundation, providing a safe context for our staff to talk about the foundation’s culture and to better understand how the culture impacts our overall effectiveness. The process seems to have changed the way we think about ourselves as a staff, and has helped build the trust needed to work together effectively.
We found the data interesting, in and of itself, and it was especially useful to see how we compared to foundations like us. The SPR led to some important conversations about defining the workplace we want to be, and we’ve changed our behavior to zero in on those goals. Knowing that our progress will be measured by the next round of the SPR keeps us motivated!
