The survey will ask questions about where and how you work, and what team you work in.It will also ask you for demographic data such as age, gender, ethnicity and whether you have caring responsibilities.

How will my survey data be treated?
Upon the close of the survey, IES will download and analyse the anonymised dataset, and will not be able to identify any individual from their survey responses.
Based on the survey responses, IES will produce a series of reports that summarises the main findings from the survey data. Your responses will be combined with the responses of other Dogs Trust employees and analysed collectively. Separate reports will be prepared that analyse the data at three hierarchical levels:
- Organisation – analyses and presents data for Dogs Trust as a whole

Senior managers with fewer than 10 responses from team members will not receive separate reports. Open text questions will be thematically analysed, and the main themes will be reported to Dogs Trust. Individuals will not be named and will not be identifiable in any reporting format. You will not be identifiable in any of the reports that IES provides to Dogs Trust.
