2018 Workforce Survey
The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) is repeating the workforce survey for 2018. This vital research has provided statistics showing the state of trading standards services across the UK.
This vital information allows CTSI to create evidence-based policy positions for Governments and key stakeholders. The most recent survey provided a longer-term analysis of trends and was quoted within the Government’s recent green paper.
The prompt sheet provides an overview of the questions and suggests data that you should have available when completing the survey to help expedite the process. If you have the information suggested on this sheet the survey should take no longer than 15 minutes.
If you have any queries please contact Ben Richards, Campaigns and Policy Officer.
