This tool acts like taking a pulse in a workplace health check, where you are invited to share stories about experiences in your newly upgraded workplace - the Marymead Centre in Narrabundah. By collecting many stories from many people, we start to see how to make everyone’s experience at work better.

We’d like your work stories to be heard and counted. If we can see the big picture, we can all work together to make a big difference.


How to Participate

It should take around 5-10 minutes for you to add a story to this pulse check and answer questions about what it means to you.

There are four steps to completing an entry.

Think of an actual work or work-like experience

You are unique; your environment might just make a difference to your work. Think about an experience in your workplace which made work either easier or more challenging. Consider the why, who, where, what when and how of that experience. What happened?

Share your experience and give it a title

Write about your experience in the large box. In the smaller box below, give the experience a shorter title or a hashtag. Your experience is anonymous. You’ll also be asked to choose the level of detail we can share your experience. Together we can learn quickly about issues you face to support you and your work.

Tell us what your experience meant to you

You will be asked questions about the experience you have shared. Your answers will allow you to add more meaning to the experience. There are instructions to follow as you go. All of your answers are valued and there is not ‘wrong’ or ‘right’. Each experience is a one off; taken together these experiences describe your work situation.

Multiple choice  questions
 

These questions add  more meaning to help others understand your story or experience. If they don’t apply, tick NA. Please answer as many of these as you can. This information helps us understand the issues that people in different roles face in their work.
