How long will the survey take to complete?
The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes and needs to be completed in one go.
What is the business identifier?
The business identifier is a unique code which has been created for your workplace only. It does not identify workers personally. It ensures that all responses for your workplace are collated together in one report.
Can I be identified?
Individual responses are confidential and anonymous. Responses will be collated and provided via a summary report.
Can individuals get a copy of their results?
Workers can request a confidential summary of their results including ideas about how they can improve their health and wellbeing. More information about how to do this is at the end of the survey.
