Enterprise Research & Feedback Panel
Tell Hull City Council What You Think
A new way for organisations in the Humber region to have their say, and to influence local decisions - the Enterprise Panel is open to all organisations with an interest in the Humber region, regardless of size, constitution or sector – large, small, private, public, charity or social enterprise.
In the current survey we want to understand how you feel about the current economic climate, your predictions for the coming year, satisfaction with your broadband provider, cyber-security and how your council can provide local organisations with a better service.
All of your responses will be confidential and results will be reported anonymously.
Members can also take advantage of marketing and sponsorship opportunities with the People’s Panel.

Working Voices Project
NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is working with the People's Panel and the Enterprise Panel to reach out to the local workforce through the Working Voices Initiative. The programme will support employers to create a happier, healthier and more empowered workforce.
Working Voices takes health information and engagement activities to the workforce rather than expecting them to come to us. Capturing the views of the working population about changes within the NHS will provide valuable insight from this often ignored group. A number of local employers have already joined the project. Interested in taking part?
