Workplace Pride Surveys
The Workplace Pride employee surveys have been created to measure the perceptions and opinions of LGBTIQ+ people in the workplace worldwide. As we enter a new decade, the scope of our surveys need to broaden to include the concept of asking employees “what they think” regarding LGBTIQ+ inclusion as opposed to solely the employers perspectives.
Our surveys have two distinctly differing versions:
The Global Employee Survey (GES)
The Workplace Pride Global Employee Survey (GES):
This ongoing version supports the scientific research of the Workplace Pride Chair at Leiden University, Dr. Jojanneke van der Toorn. The goal here is to provide empirically scientiﬁc data from potentially any LGBTIQ+ person (and their colleagues worldwide) on how they perceive their employer’s policies and practices on LGBTIQ+ inclusion. The GES will be ongoing throughout the year.
The Organisational Employee Survey (OES)
The Workplace Pride Organisational Employee Survey (OES):
This new version primarily targets employees working for Workplace Pride Member organisations. It can be used as a ‘control mechanism’ for participants of the Workplace Pride Global Benchmark to determine how their policies and practices that are measured via the Global Benchmark, are actually perceived by their employees.
The OES is strictly anonymous. Responses are collected in a separate survey for each participating organisation. The OES is free to Workplace Pride Members. Results formats are differentiated based upon membership level.
Non Workplace Pride Members may participate in the OES for a fee.
Q: What will be the benefits of my organisation taking part in the OES?
Q: How can we implement the OES?
Q: There are already numerous surveys, so why should we choose the OES?

Q: Can we identify which of our employees filled out the OES?
A: No. The OES is strictly anonymous.

Q: Will the OES have an award at the Gala?
A: This is a possibility that is currently being explored.
