Wellbeing at Work Survey Relaunch: Insights on the Future of the Workplace

The Conveyancing Foundation has launched its ‘Wellbeing at Work Survey’ for the second year running with a £500 voucher on offer for taking part.

The “Wellbeing at Work” survey, first launched in February 2023, is designed to understand and evaluate the stresses and strains and the mental health and wellbeing initiatives and structures that can enhance the lives of those working within the conveyancing and property industry. The objective is to analyse this year’s results in comparison to the 2023 findings, with the comparisons helping to shape and develop forward-thinking guidelines, potentially revolutionising how the property sector addresses the promotion of wellbeing in the workplace.

Over 500 practitioners completed last year’s survey which asked 26 questions on mental health, the causes of stress and the support mechanisms available within legal practices. The results showed that levels of stress are higher for those who are 100% office-based for their work (with no opportunity to work from home/remotely). The working relationships between colleagues within a business were found to be important, especially in terms of having good friendships, feeling connected with your immediate team, and seeing your immediate line manager as approachable.

How to Get Involved

The relaunched “Wellbeing at Work” survey is now available to complete and is open to anyone working within the property sector. While the survey responses are kept entirely confidential, participants have the opportunity to enter a luxury prize draw where they stand a chance to win one of three prizes, with a combined valued of over £1000.

  • £500 Cash
  • Luxury one Night Spa Break for two at a choice of locations
  • Fortnum & Masons Hamper

The survey, crafted in collaboration with Morale Solutions, will be open for responses until Monday, 19th February. Complete the survey here.

Following the survey results, the Conveyancing Foundation will produce new wellbeing toolkits and supporting materials, which will be accessible on the BKWC Resource Hub, to provide ongoing support to those working in the property industry. Elizabeth Rimmer, Conveyancing Foundation Ambassadress and CEO of LawCare, said:

“Participating in the survey is not just an opportunity to contribute to industry insights; it is a chance to actively shape the future of our workplace. The Conveyancing Foundation’s commitment extends beyond the survey, with a dedication to fostering an environment that prioritizes the wellbeing of professionals in our field.

I encourage every individual in the conveyancing and property industry to take a few moments to share their experiences and perspectives through the ‘Wellbeing at Work’ survey. Your input is invaluable, and together, we can drive positive change and create a workplace culture that truly cares for its people.”

Lloyd Davies, Chairman of the Conveyancing Foundation added:

“We are delighted to commission the ‘Wellbeing at Work’ survey for the second year running. This industry-wide initiative provides an immediate understanding the nuanced aspects of mental health and wellbeing within the conveyancing and property sector workplace.

I would encourage everyone in the conveyancing and property industry to take a few minutes to share their thoughts and experiences. Your perspective matters and together we can help to create healthier and more supportive working environments.”
