People Count 2015 is proving to be really popular across the Third Sector, from social care organisations, large national charities, small local hospices to housing associations, everyone is catered for. But don’t just take our word for it – read what our clients say about the study:

“The drill down reports allow us to analyse in much more depth the data provided, and by completing this survey yearly, it allows us to gather good comparative data to view our people management processes and statistics over a number of years.”
Claire Withers, MacIntyre

Not only have we identified our strengths and weaknesses in comparison to our peers so that we can proactively improve our people practices, but we also now have a raft of statistics that we have:
• Shared with our staff to demonstrate our commitment to supporting them
• Begun to use in tender applications and framework agreements
• Discussed with our Investors In People auditor to evidence the calibre of our people processes”

Martin Botting, Aldingbourne Trust

“People Count adds value in allowing us to benchmark against not only our sector but also our self-selected peer group.

“We have used the report to inform the review and revision of our own internal reporting allowing us to develop more robust reports and measures that can be regularly reported on and benchmarked externally.

“The best practice areas have proven particularly useful this year allowing us to follow-up relevant topics of interest with other organisations and broaden our network.”

Jade Preston, Arthritis Research UK

“The People Count survey was able to provide us with some solid information in comparing us with our peers. This enabled us to do the following:

• Formulate a new recruitment and retention strategy based on evidence from the survey and our own exit interview information
• Provide Trustees with some concrete information about how we compare to others in the sector both in a positive and a negative way
• Provide evidence for under-resourcing of our HR team and identify more realistic staffing and budget levels
• Provide evidence for the need for improvements needed such as the need for a better HR Software system
• Identify areas that we need to measure in a more consistent and accurate way
• Provide us with information to assist us with our Investors in People assessment”

Claire Stone, The Matthew Project

“People Count helps focus our people strategy through a better understanding our people profile and performance. We particularly value the ability to benchmark with our peers and the breadth of measures available to us.”

Lorraine Jenkins, Sense

“The benchmarking data we get from People Count is a crucial element in our decision-making, not just within the Human Resources department but at Executive level. Understanding how we compare to other organisations has led us to make several major decisions about new projects, initiatives and policy revisions.”

Andrew West, Royal College of Nursing
