workingmums.co.uk has launched its long-running annual survey with a focus on how the changing economic climate is impacting working parents.

The survey includes a section, for instance, on parents who are doing more than one job, exploring the motivation for this and the impact of it.

It also covers flexible working, for example, whether parents have been forced to do more days in the office over the last year and what impact that has had, whether they are getting support if they work remotely and whether flexible working has been withdrawn or changed and the impact that has had on their working lives.

The survey also covers parents’ attitudes to and experiences of the extension of ‘free’ childcare, self employment experiences, attitudes to jobseeking in an uncertain jobs market, retraining, mental health [both parents’ own mental health and that of their children] – including bullying at work, debt, parental leave experiences and whether parents have noticed a backlash against equality, diversity and inclusion in the past year.

The annual survey runs over the next couple of months and the results will be published in September and will be discussed at an online event on 1st October [12-1pm] with working families expert Sarah Jackson OBE, Visiting Professor at Senior Associate Chair of  and Nadia Nagamootoo, best-selling author, Chartered Psychologist, accredited coach and Founder of DEI consultancy Avenir.

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete and the aim is to help encourage organisations across the UK to make changes to the way they manage workers and take into account the different priorities and challenges faced by mums in particular, given they are still likely to be the main carers.

A workingmums.co.uk spokesperson said: “We really want to hear from working mums about their experiences, particularly given the rapidly changing work situation. We have gone from the first lockdown and very few job vacancies to massive labour shortages to an economic slowdown and a cost of living crisis in just a few years, not to mention the impact on the health service. We are keen to track how these enormous shifts affect working parents and what policymakers and employers can do to help.”

All completed surveys will be entered into our free prize draw to win £250 vouchers of your choice – parents need to simply ensure they complete their contact details at the end if they wish to enter.
