Understanding digital communication and work stress

The University of South Australia is asking university employees across Australia to participate in a four-year ARC project that is designed to shed light on the impact of digital communication and technological change in Australia’s public universities. The researchers have specifically requested assistance from Flinders University in this project.

Information is being gathered through a short online survey including questions about email load, work engagement, work-home conflicts, fatigue and recovery, and sleep quality and quantity. The questions have been designed to understand both the experiences of university staff at work and how well-being is affected.

Led by Chief Investigator Professor Maureen Dollard of UniSA’s Centre for  Workplace Excellence, the aim of this study is to assess employee well-being across multiple universities to identify key priority areas for the sector in promoting healthier and safer work environments.

The survey can be accessed at this link. It should take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Any questions may be directed to Amy Zadow at the University of South Australia.

The research team thanks Flinders University staff in advance for assisting on this valuable sector study.
