A dedicated Attitudes to Work Survey is being offered free of charge by HR technology experts Peachy Mondays to help employers understand how employees feel about new ways of working post-pandemic and post-furlough.
From October, many companies will be mandating that staff return to the office, whilst others are adopting a more flexible approach.
What is becoming clear, after this period of profound change and disruptive innovation, is that there is no one-size-fits-all.
The survey seeks to offer clarity in how to help employees in this new world of work.
The tool will produce ‘clear, actionable, real-time results on employees’ sentiment to their employer as they navigate and propose new working practices.
Employers using the survey will be able to transparently understand how their people feel about work right now and provide them with the support they need to succeed.
The online survey provides participating companies with their own bespoke results, providing insight on the topics that matter most to their employees, including:
- Sentiment towards a new way of working and the ideal balance employees would like to see. Initial findings suggest a demand for more flexible working in the future right across our client base, regardless of sector. If employers can’t – or won’t – meet that demand, employees will vote with their feet.
- What tools and resources are needed. New ways of working are materialising and with that comes the need for the right level of training and resources to ensure the workforce is efficient and productive when working from home. Early results indicate that workplaces need to be reconfigured to become flexible, social learning spaces.
- Employee Engagement is more important than ever. Communication remains critical and the survey provides a further opportunity to pulse the workforce on how well the company is doing to stay connected and support their employees.

Peachy Mondays co-founder James Anderson said: “We decided to offer this service after the huge success of the COVID-19 Employee Pulse Check that we released as the pandemic took hold in April 2020.
“We have focused on delivering real-time insights with the minimum time investment from busy HR and Internal Comms teams, and we want to help as many people as possible during this period of transition, so we decided to make it available for free.
“Not only are we helping employers understand the sentiments of their employees quickly, it is also having a positive effect on employees, who know they are being listened to, which in turn reflects well on the organisations.”
The survey questions are focused on insights on current and future working arrangements. Some questions are conditional on a previous question to ensure the questions are relevant to the respondent which is especially important when distinguishing between those that want to return to the office.
The free tool is available on a global basis until December 10th, 2021.
