Wellbeing of Architects follow-up survey 2023

2 May 2023

Improving mental wellbeing in practice is fundamental to the future of the profession. The ACA is proud to once again support the Wellbeing of Architects research project and encourages all to participate in this important follow-up survey on work-related wellbeing.

Do you think that working in architecture has affected your wellbeing, for better or worse? If there are issues with work-related wellbeing in architecture, what are they, what is contributing to them, and has this changed in the last two years?

Many of you would have completed the first Wellbeing of Architects survey in 2021, and the research team thanks you for your valuable contribution (you can read about the findings of the first survey here.)

This second survey is for everyone – for those who completed the last survey (so the team can compare any change in wellbeing in the last two years) and also for those completing the survey for the first time.

This project is gathering the most reliable and comprehensive set of data ever collected about wellbeing in the architecture profession – across Australia, covering all types and sizes of practice, and over time. More information about the project and publications can be found here.

This data will build on the first survey and focus groups to contribute to the development of resources, toolkits and practical advice – to help architectural practices, institutions and organisations to better support their people and create positive workplace cultures.

Participation is anonymous and confidential. Completing the survey will take around 15–20 minutes (it’s a little shorter than the last iteration) – so grab a cup of tea and settle in to contribute to better understanding and greater wellbeing in architecture!

The survey will be open until Tuesday 30 May 2023.
