In January we undertook our first ever Staff Survey. Overwhelmingly, staff enjoy their work, are proud to work for Youth Options and feel appreciated. They are positive in terms of understanding what the charity wants to achieve and are confident in the leadership team. The Staff Forum meets monthly to share thoughts, opinions and discuss solutions to potential issues including those raised by the Staff Survey. As part of this, they have completed a workplace audit to identify how staff feel about their working environment. We know that people’s physical working environment can have an impact on their mental health. We’re doing our best to address any concerns identified to keep all our staff happy and healthy.
