FAQ on the Corona Farm Survey in Uganda

What is the COVID-19 survey?

The COVID-19 survey is initiated by WageIndicator and focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the continuity of the company's business, and the protective measures provided by the company to its workers in dealing with the spread of the virus.

Survey results related to Flower Farms conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic will be displayed on the Farm Info page and the Decentwork site.

What is the purpose of the COVID-19 survey?

The COVID-19 survey aims to gather information about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on business activities, and what steps companies have taken in dealing with the crisis.

The results of this survey will be used as a database to conduct dialogue and negotiations with government institutions and / or other relevant parties.

What are the benefits of completing the COVID-19 survey?

The results of this survey can become a database for conducting dialogue and negotiations with government institutions and / or other relevant parties. When policymakers gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by workers, they will be able to more effectively develop policies that are responsive to the needs of workers.

To ensure that relevant institutions (whether government, employers, trade unions / labour unions, non-political organisations) have the right data to make the right decisions, this survey will provide a deeper understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected workers and business continuity.

The survey will also highlight what steps companies are taking in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, where workers and employers can share information and learn from the ways in which companies have responded to the crisis.

What are the contents of the COVID-19 survey?

The COVID-19 survey looks at issues such as:

  1. Steps in the Flower Farm regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus

How does your salary choose representatives from which companies will be surveyed?

WageIndicator has a Flower Farm Decent Work programme in Uganda featuring a job eligibility survey where contact was established with representatives of trade unions / labour unions at the company level, and / or management (HRD) in companies.

Who are the target respondents for the COVID-19 survey?

The target respondents of the survey are representatives of trade unions / labour unions at the company level and / or management (HRD).

How will the COVID-19 survey be conducted?

In one of two ways:

  1. WageIndicator interviewers will contact and disseminate information regarding the COVID-19 survey to trade unions / labour unions at the company level and / or company management (HRD)

The interviewer will schedule when the respondent can be interviewed by telephone

The interviewer will guide the process of filling out the COVID-19 survey, and directly input answers from respondents into the COVID-19 survey application

  1. Respondents complete the Covid-19 survey themselves

Company-level labour unions and / or management (HRD) representatives fill out an online survey.

Work process

The survey team will share the COVID-19 survey link along with an explanation of the text regarding the COVID-19 survey with trade unions via email, whatsapp group, etc.

If needed, the WageIndicator interviewer can contact and assist respondents to complete the COVID-19 survey.

COVID-19 survey results will be analyzed and displayed in the form of data visualization, where the data visualization will be displayed on the Decentwork website and can be accessed by everyone for free.

Website visitors can find out about the working conditions in each Flower Farm surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Visualization of COVID-19 survey data will later be sent to relevant parties (government, brands, employers, trade unions / labour unions, non-political organizations) as basic information to trigger social dialogue in order to more effectively develop policies that are responsive to workers' needs.

When will the COVID-19 survey be conducted?

The Covid-19 survey began in early May 2020.

To get accurate and up-to-date data, the interviewer will conduct an interview process for 2 (two) weeks 1 (one) time, as due to the uncertain pandemic situation, the employment conditions in each company may also change every week.

That way, the WageIndicator team can monitor changes in conditions that occur in each company and can display them in data visualization.

For companies that fill out their own surveys, we also recommend filling in the COVID-19 survey if there is a change in business or work conditions in your company.
