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.

That’s the CEP difference.

Survey themes include:

  • Employee engagement and empowerment
  • Leadership, management, and supervisor relationships
  • Culture and communication
  • Grantmaking effectiveness and grantee interactions
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
