Make UK Manufacturing Outlook Survey 2019 Q4

As many of you know, Make UK produce a quarterly Manufacturing Outlook report which looks at the economic position of our sector. We are keen to have the best possible quality of data from as much of the sector as possible, therefore we would be most grateful if you would ask your members to complete the Q4 survey.

Please find below an invite for the 2019 Q4 Manufacturing Outlook survey to send out to your members. Please feel free to use the text as it is or edit as you see fit. If you make changes please ensure you include the line explaining how the data collected is used and a link to the Make UK privacy policy for GDPR.

Our survey team have also set out some useful guidance points for the communication:
• If you amend the invite copy we suggest keeping it to 250 words or less (to aid response rates).
• Please make sure you include the reason we are working together, what the survey is about, the survey link and deadline.
• If you are able to send personalised invites (via mail merge for example) this normally helps to boost response rates. This is not essential though.
• Please send the survey invite out to CEO/MD/Senior decision maker contacts at your manufacturing member companies.

All survey responses are collected via the survey software we use and the survey is set up to be able to be accessed on PCs, smartphones and tablets.

The survey is now open and will run until Wednesday 20 November 2019.
