The employee survey and following one-to-ones have provided the means of obtaining feedback and ideas from Biggin Hill's staff on an anonymous basis and also individually. The fact that views are sought from each member of staff has enabled them to really understand the results and to deliver ongoing business and employee engagement improvements. This is evidenced by improvements in the survey participation figures and the survey results each year.
