CPP’s focus on supporting the health and wellbeing of our staff has been highly praised once again in our annual staff survey.
Following a second year of working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, employees said that that the regular check-ins from management are making a real positive difference to their working life.
One staff member said: “The health and wellbeing of people has been a major plus part for me especially during the pandemic. Everyone is willing to talk or listen and that extends to senior management and beyond.”
Another responded: “There’s a sense that senior leadership within the organisation really care about staff; their health and their wellbeing.”
The results of the survey, conducted in January, which showed not only an increase in response rate – up 11% to 85%, but an increase in positive responses across the board.
Employees praised the organisation for allowing them to feel empowered and work autonomously. They mentioned that being supported and trusted by their managers to get the job done was a big positive for how they feel about CPP.
Helen Lisle, CPP’s Managing Director, said: “It’s been an immensely challenging period for all staff working in NHS procurement and wider. So, to continue to see such a fantastic response from our staff should be celebrated.
“The benchmark we set in our last staff survey was so very high, we wondered how we could possibly maintain it, so to exceed it is incredible.”
One of the measures CPP introduced last year as a result of COVID was the introduction of Smart Working – a hybrid model of working which allows our employees to work flexibly from home and its offices.
