SURVEYS

We provide you with the opportunity to complete one or more of four specially-designed Women in Research surveys,
from which you will receive personalised feedback and tips to guide you in your career:

 

1. Managing You

2. Managing Your Work Well-Being

3. Managing, Influencing and Leading Others, and

4. Managing Your Career 

 

Each survey is:

  • Validated by research. All of the aspects we survey are research-based evidence meaning that the guidance is evidence-based.

  • Free of charge. We provide these surveys without cost for your own personal development and to support research into women's careers. 

  • Benchmarked against managerial populations, where available. For most of the measures, we are able to show you how your responses compare to a large group of more than 500 Australian managers. We also provide information about how your response compares to other Australian women researchers.

  • Linked to website resources. When you receive your personalised feedback report, the report shows links between the survey findings and the materials covered in the website. 

  • Completely confidential. We ask you to generate a unique identifier (known only to you) so that we can link your different surveys. Your individual data will be treated confidentially, and viewed only by the research team. Only you will receive your personalised feedback report, and entirely it's up to you who you share it with.

NOTE- in the first survey you complete, you will be asked some detailed demographic questions so we can understand the impact of these factors on your responses. These will not be repeated when you complete subsequent surveys.

The Managing Your Work Well-being survey assesses and provides feedback on:

(1) Your Well-being at Work (i.e., your reactions to your work, such as your level of burnout and your job satisfaction).

(2) Your Work Context (ie.g., the demands of your role, the support that is afforded you through job design, support from your leader, exposure to harassment., etc). Research shows the work context is a powerful influence on your well-being at work.

(3) Your Recovery and Coping Styles (i.e., how well you recover from & cope with stress). Recovery and coping also affect your well-being.

Research suggests that individuals who have a more flexible work identity are more likely to pursue their calling in a healthy way and are more likely to engage in proactive career behaviours.

The Managing Your Career survey provides insights into your work identity as well as your behaviours that can increase success in planning and building your career.
