Asset Skills survey for FM employers

07 August 2008

Asset Skills asks FM employers to participate in its 'Barometer' survey that seeks to establish solid data on levels of investment in skills and company performance.

Asset Skills, the Sector Skills Council for FM is charged with being the voice of the employer and articulating key messages to government. As part of this, there is a continual need to gather intelligence about the sector to inform its activities. This is currently undertaken through the analysis of official data sources and research projects. But by launching its “Barometer” survey, Asset Skills hopes to have on-going analysis that will provide richer intelligence and greater understanding of the industry. And this will help determine subsequent actions and initiatives to drive up skills and productivity.

The starting point is to try and engage companies in this exercise. All we ask of employers is a little of their time. Data and intelligence will be initially collected during an interview with Asset Skills. Information from the questionnaire will then be collected on a six monthly basis.

The survey will cover:

 Business growth objectives
 Current challenges
 Investment in skills and training
 Access to skills and knowledge

All companies taking part in this research will be guaranteed confidentiality. Analysis of the data will be carried out within Asset Skills. All resulting information will be presented in an aggregated format and no individual company will be cited or named. The information gained within this exercise will inform the ‘State of the Sector’ reports which Asset Skills will produce on a six monthly basis.

If you are interested in taking part in this survey, please contact
