Bringing you together

Benchmarking and surveys

Knowing how you’re doing against performance indicators as well as how you compare to other organisations can drive your business forward. Analytics give you the information you need to make reasoned decisions about where to invest your time and money in order to improve.

We’re here to help, whether it’s a couple of questions that we include in a mini-survey, more extensive benchmarking information or help with employee surveys.

Whatever data you need, please get in touch and we’ll work with you to find the answers.

Mini Surveys

We regularly circulate mini-surveys to HR contacts, Education HR contacts, Health and Safety contacts or Democratic Services contacts on behalf of our councils. Topics have included sickness absence, facilities time, multi-disciplinary job descriptions, and the living wage. SEE members can view and participate in the latest mini-survey here. Please note you will need to be logged in to complete the survey. For further details on mini-surveys, please contact our advice line.

LGA Workforce Surveys

We work with colleagues at the LGA to gather workforce data to aid understanding of the issues facing the sector.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we are working to collect key workforce data from all councils in the South East Region. For summary results and details of the survey please see our dedicated page.

Employee Surveys

Employees are often reluctant to complete workplace surveys honestly if the responses are being collected and collated in-house. We can work with you to design and deliver the survey you need and then we are the independent organisation who receives the responses. We anonymise and collate the data, presenting it in an easy to read report ready for your management team.   Please contact us for further details or to discuss your needs.


Infinistats is a secure and intelligent data respository accelerating accurate data collection, benchmarking and reporting within organisations, for south east region councils replacing the now decommisioned Epaycheck.

Bite-Sized Benchmarking Surveys

Designed to capture the key HR analytics data that every organisation should have at their fingertips, we run a number of focused benchmarking surveys each year. Topics include sickness absence, equality & diversity, HR workforce and retention and turnover. If there’s an area of performance indicators that we don’t currently cover, please get in touch and we will work with you to develop a suitable approach to collecting the information.

Member Allowances Survey

Councils are required to review their allowances scheme on a regular basis. SEE can help with this as we run an annual survey. All councils in the region are asked to participate and the results are made available to everyone who responds. We’re pleased to report that for the 2017/2018 survey we had a 100% response rate.  SEE members can view the latest results here.
