What is Aspire?

Aspire is an online survey which provides reports on your organisation's "health". These reports are based on each individual's perception of the 12 Organisational Areas and 8 Values. The survey will reveal key strengths and weaknesses, areas for growth and will give you a clear idea of what is going on with people at their level and beyond. The aim of Aspire is to help you keep focused on godliness, to maintain professional excellence and help unlock potential.

Aspire provides a fresh, easy, yet comprehensive way to look at your organisation's effectiveness and ethos.
