Health and Wellbeing Survey 2019

CIEEM’s 2017-2018 Employment and Salary Survey revealed a profession that is passionate about their work, highly committed and motivated. But it also revealed a deep unhappiness with the reliance on working long and often unsocial hours, especially during the spring/summer months and there were many comments from respondents about the impact of work on their physical and mental well-being and their family life.

This survey was created to inform the planning of our Summer Conference which was on health and well-being in the profession. This report summarises the results from the survey and proposes some ideas for next steps, including feedback from conference delegates.
