The WeThrive DEEI Survey is designed to focus on helping managers create workplace conditions with true diversity, equality, equity, and inclusion.

The DEEI Survey asks 16 top-level questions covering the 16 key areas (find out more about these here).

In the areas that people score lowest, the survey then asks a further set of more specific questions. This means each person gets a unique survey experience, and the resulting analysis is able to identify the highest causes of frustrations and recommend actions to help managers pinpoint which areas employees feel could use most improvement.

Each question is answered on a 0-10 scale moving from Strongly disagree (0) to Strongly agree (10).

Our 16 top level questions

  • Privacy - I feel comfortable choosing how much and with whom I discuss my private life.

  • Free from worry - I can voice my thoughts without worrying about the consequences.

  • Opportunities - I get fair and equal opportunities for development and promotions.

  • Achievement - My contribution is recognised and rewarded fairly.

  • Enablement - I get the training, tools and support that meet my needs.

  • Adjustments - My work arrangements and work environment support my personal circumstances and needs.

  • Utilisation - My skills are recognised and put into use appropriately and meaningfully.

  • Participation - I am invited to have a say in matters that affect me.

  • Contribution - I feel I am meaningfully contributing to my team and company goals.

  • Belonging - I feel included in business and social activities at work.

  • Being Heard - My ideas, opinions and perspectives are listened to and valued.

  • Support - I have people at work who understand and support me.

  • Safety - I feel safe bringing my whole self into work.

  • Respect - I feel respected for who I am and what I think.

  • Individuality - I feel my individuality is accepted and valued (e.g. my personality, identity, background).

  • Variety - My company welcomes a diverse range of individuals (e.g. different personalities, identities, backgrounds).
