Your Job. How satisfied are you? What matters most to you? We’re exploring the factors behind job satisfaction and burnout.

How do job demands (e.g., work overload), job resources (e.g., organisational and co-worker support), and personal resources (e.g., psychological flexibility, mindfulness, emotional stability, job crafting), influence a person’s engagement at work, their psychological well-being, their job satisfaction, and their intention to stay in their job?

Research into the well-being of Australian workers is currently being conducted at the University of Southern Queensland, as part of the ACCELL program of research. Our goal is to better understand how different factors fit together, and which ones contribute to people feeling motivated and satisfied at work and which ones contribute to people feeling burnt out and dissatisfied at work.

We are looking for Australian citizens or permanent residents, aged 18 years or older, who are currently working in some form of paid employment (e.g., casual, part-time, full-time) to complete an online survey. The survey takes, on average, approximately 20 minutes. It can be completed over several sittings, with the results saved in between, upon creation of a personal login.

If you are willing to help us by completing the survey, here is the link:
