All members of Pride in Health +Wellbeing and those submitting for the HWEI (regardless of membership) will be able to participate in the optional HWEI employee survey. This survey provides organisations valuable insights into employee attitudes beliefs and experiences of LGBTQ-inclusive care, as well as free text on what is being done well and where improvements can be made.
The 2024 Survey will open on the 9th of October and close in line with the HWEI Index submission period (Monday 5th February 2024)
Each year the HWEI employee survey looks at employees’ understanding of the need for LGBTQ-inclusive service delivery, their access to resources to support them in providing inclusive care and their comfort levels in delivering inclusive care. This survey allows organisations to anonymously review their employees’ gaps in understanding, their knowledge of tools and inclusive care, or where there may be a disconnect between understanding the need for inclusion and putting it into practice. The survey is anonymous and open to all employees regardless of how they identify.
As a result of participating, service providers will receive a high-level analysis of their employees’ responses (individuals are not identified; only the name of the organisation participating).
PIHW has a variety of resources to assist organisations promote the survey employees, as well as some FAQs and background information to answer any questions.
