Preparing members for our State of Trade Survey

29 Oct 2020 | BALI News

We are asking members to mark Thursday 5 November 2020 in their diary when we will launch our State of Trade Survey 2020. This year we have simplified the questions and redesigned the survey to make it even easier for members to provide feedback. It’s imperative that we work together, at a time of national crisis, to understand the wider impacts from COVID-19, Brexit, the new plant health regulations, the squeezing of supply chains and difficulties surrounding recruitment and training. This data will help provide the necessary insight into the state of our industry and will arm BALI with the facts that we urgently need to ensure we are providing relevant support to members and their business.

This year’s survey has been split into three, with each survey targeting a specific BALI membership category; Designer/Contractor, Supplier and Training Provider. This replaces previous formats where one survey was sent to all members, regardless of the type of business they were responding on behalf of.

The aim is to increase the number of responses from members to gain a wider and more informed picture of the current state of industry from within the BALI membership network. The survey will be sent to members via email, uploaded to the member’s area on the BALI website and will be added as a link to both the members-only Facebook Group and the appropriate LinkedIn Groups on Thursday 5 November 2020. The survey will take a maximum of 20 minutes and the personal information collected will remain confidential, with only the data used in subsequent reports. BALI members who take part in the survey will receive a free copy of the report which is due before Christmas.

For further information, members are advised to contact Technical Officer (Policy & Research) Owen Baker or Marketing and Communications Manager Darren Taylor
