We invite you to participate in a survey about the impact of architectural work cultures and professional identity on the well-being of people working in architecture in Australia.
Many of you would have completed our first Wellbeing of Architects survey conducted in 2021, and we thank you for your valuable contribution. We invite those who did, to also complete this second survey – so that we can compare any change in wellbeing in the last two years. Of course we also welcome those who are completing the survey for the first time.
This research is important as it will contribute to tailored resources to support workplaces, and professional and educational organizations in architecture, as they work towards improved occupational wellbeing through cultural change.
The research is funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and is being undertaken by Professor Naomi Stead, Professor Julie Wolfram Cox, Associate Professor Maryam Gusheh and Associate Professor Brian Cooper, at Monash University, and Dr Kirsten Orr, Registrar of the NSW Architects Registration Board. More information on the project, including its many industry partners, can be found here.
This survey will ask about:
- your work-related wellbeing (social, physical and emotional),
- your professional identity,
- your perceptions of support, and
- the impact of work culture and practices on your wellbeing
Participation is entirely voluntary. The survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete (it is slightly shorter than the last iteration) and your responses will be completely anonymous and confidential.
Your views are important and we deeply appreciate your contribution to improving cultures of wellbeing in the profession.
Should you have any further queries about this study or if you would like to obtain a copy of the findings, please contact Research Officer Byron Kinnaird email@example.com or project leader, Professor Naomi Stead firstname.lastname@example.org
This research project has been approved by the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee (Project ID: 36237).
The survey will be open until Tuesday, 30 May 2023.
