Health and social care - everyone matters pulse survey: national report 2020

Independent report by Webropol providing detailed information and analysis of staff experience in health and social care during the initial COVID-19 period.


Overall Experience

There are two measures in the Everyone Matters Pulse Survey 2020 of staff's overall opinion:

  • Overall experience of working in the organisation
  • Recommendation of the organisation as a good place to work

Overall Experience 

Staff's overall experience of working in their organisation is good, with 61% of staff rating their experience as very high or high.

Note: Rounding of data can lead to differences of +/- 1 on some totals throughout this report.

Comparison to iMatter

In the 2020 Everyone Matters Pulse Survey the overall experience question was asked using a scale of 1 (very poor experience) to 10 (very good experience). Previously iMatter has used an 11 point scale from 0 (very poor experience), through to 10 (very good experience). Therefore, direct comparison of absolute scores cannot be made. 

The iMatter results for this question for 2019 and 2018 are shown for reference only.

iMatter
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Mean
2019 1% 1% 1% 3% 5% 13% 13% 23% 19% 11% 11% 6.89
2018 1% 1% 2% 4% 5% 12% 13% 22% 20% 10% 10% 6.79

Notes:

  • Whist the Everyone Matters Pulse Survey 2020 was different in content to iMatter 2019, it is reasonable to draw some comparisons between equivalent questions within the two data sets.
