Workingmums.co.uk’s annual survey 2022 has been launched, with several questions focused on the implications of the cost of living crisis.
Workingmums.co.uk has launched its annual survey, with a focus on how the cost of living crisis is affecting family life.
The survey, sponsored by Capgemini, seeks to find out how the last year has affected working mums as we emerge from the lockdown stages of Covid.
Questions include whether the cost of living crisis is having an impact on childcare decisions and whether rising childcare costs are changing parents’ work decisions.
The survey will also look at whether mums have had to increase their hours, the number of jobs they do or move jobs to get more pay and whether they are likely to have to go back to work earlier than anticipated due to maternity pay rates not rising in line with inflation and worries about the cost of living.
Another issue which will be covered is attitudes to and availability of flexible working, including hybrid working. The survey will look at to what extent the Covid years have impacted flexible working.
Childcare availability is another issue, including holiday childcare, wraparound care and care for children with special needs. Other issues explored are financial worries, mental health, job changes, retraining, attitudes to self employment and more.
The results of the survey will be published in September. workingmums.co.uk has been doing an annual survery for over a decade and its results chart the changing work environment that parents are facing. Over the course of the last two years, it has been doing more regular surveys because the pandemic brought so many changes and issues for working mums.
The survey should take no more than five minutes. The aim is to feed the results back to policymakers and employers to give them an insight into the different priorities and challenges faced by working mothers in the current environment.
All completed surveys will be entered into a free prize draw to win £250 worth of vouchers (retailer of respondents’ choice).
