Further information 

What is the Ways to Work Employer Evaluation? 

The survey that we are undertaking for Liverpool City Region involves speaking to employers who have hosted Ways to Work placements to understand the impact of these placements on the individuals supported and the host organisation and to gauge the effectiveness of the programme in helping people into work. 

What type of information is collected through the survey? 

The survey covers a wide range of topics. These include: 

  • How you became aware of the programme  

  • What were the support needs of the individual   

  • How well supported you felt as an organisation by the Ways to Work staff  

  • What impact the placements have had on the individual and the host organisation 


What is personal data? 

Personal data means any information that could lead to a person being identified either alone or in combination with other widely-available information, e.g. their name, their address, or details specific to that person.  

The survey does not collect any personal information and will not be joined with any other data sources 


How long does Liverpool City Region hold personal data for? 

Any data collected from this survey will be held for a period of no more than six months after it has been gathered. 


What is the purpose of processing your answers?  

The data is used to evaluate the success of the Ways to Work programme. It will learn about best practice and how learnings from this programme could be transferred to future employability programme and ways in which future employability programmes could be improved.
