Corporate Initiatives - Workplace Vegan-Friendliness Survey
Thank you for participating in this important Vegan Leaders in Corporate Management (VLCM) survey. The data will help us identify which companies and which areas are good candidates for vegan improvement initiatives. The results will enable us to support efforts of the vegan employees to form groups and start vegan or plant-based programs in their workplaces.
Please note this survey is intended to analyze conditions at companies. Please answer the questions as they relate to your experience related to one specific company, whether current or recent. You will have the option to answer again if applicable, such as if you have both a current and past employer.
VLCM is a not-for-profit, non-commercial community with no affiliation with other companies or vegan organizations. The results of this survey will only be used to drive VLCM programs, which are 100% free to our members.
