The Hireup Impact Study is being conducted to understand the impact our support has on the lives of people who use Hireup. We do this by asking people to think about what it means to them to lead a “quality” life. These include things like relationships, achieving in life, safety and community-connectedness, amongst others. If you have been asked to join this study, a survey will appear in a “pop down” banner on your Hireup dashboard when you are logged in.
Why is Hireup doing this study?
As a purpose-led organisation, we are in business to create meaningful and lasting change for people with disability. We do this by providing support that lets people live the life they choose. Support that is empowering, effective and satisfying. This study is one way for us to know how we’re progressing towards that goal. That said, measuring this kind of social change is challenging (as social change is often hard to notice in the moment and occurs over a long period of time), but there are ways we can work back from the impact we are hoping to have to seeing early signs of this in the lives of those seeking support on Hireup.
The questions in the survey have been developed using research conducted by the Australian Centre on Quality of Life, which seeks to understand the subjective and objective wellbeing of an individual, group or society. We chose to use these standards because the overall wellbeing of people seeking support on Hireup is important to us as we consider our role as a service provider.
What will Hireup do with the results?
What if I don’t want to participate in the survey?
That’s totally fine! It’s an optional survey, there is no pressure to participate so you should feel free to just not answer the questions.
Who can I speak to if I have more questions?
