BEN ONLINE SURVEY
September 19 2013.


BEN, the UK's dedicated charity for the automotive sector, wants to find out about the real issues affecting those who work in the industry with a brand new online survey.


Every year BEN helps thousands of people connected to the automotive industry who are facing hardship or distress by offering advice, and emotional and financial support. However, despite the positive difference it currently makes, BEN is keen to understand what life factors are causing the most significant impact so that it can review its support services and ensure these are meeting needs both today and in the future.

The new online survey is aimed at those who work, or have worked in the industry. To thank participants for completing the survey BEN has an iPad mini 16GB (WiFi) up for grabs, with the winner chosen at random after the survey finishes on October 18th (participants who provide an email address will be entered into the draw and the winner's details will be published on the BEN website).

All answers will be treated confidentially and, because BEN wants as many relevant participants as possible, the charity is hoping the link will be passed along.

"We want people to forward the link to any colleagues or friends also in the industry, so that we can get as complete a view as possible. Our primary mandate is to provide care and support but to do this we need to ensure the help we provide is relevant. Those taking the time to participate in this survey will effectively inform us and help us to shape the services we offer both for them and future generations," explained Nigel Rothband, BEN's Chief Operating Officer.

Raising awareness and ensuring its services are relevant are fundamental priorities for BEN, and this new survey is part of a renewed effort to understand how changes in the industry and wider society are affecting the people of our automotive community.
