    Technical details: How does this work?2019-08-19T01:56:06+08:00

    The Workforce Analytics Dashboard functions for every organisation, regardless if you employ hundreds or got a few volunteers. When completing the Australian Not-for-Profit Workforce Study, your staff select their workplace from a very comprehensive list of organisations, or add your organisation to that list.

    Staff responses are then automatically anonymised, aggregated, and analysed into your Workforce Analytics Dashboard. We use state-of-the-art cloud technology to store, secure and process the data. Everything is immediately in sync with all complete responses from your staff.

    At any time you may register to access the Workforce Analytics Dashboard. We will make sure you are indeed you and eligible for access. You will then receive an email with a unique code required to access the Workforce Analytics Dashboard that represents your organisation.

    Eligibility: Is this for us?2019-08-19T01:59:07+08:00

    The Workforce Analytics Dashboard is available at no charge to all Not-for-Profit and For-Purpose organisations including registered charities, associations, professional or trade groups, social clubs, amateur sports and recreation organisations, among other. We love to support everyone. If in doubt, contact us.

    For free: Why is there no cost?2019-08-19T02:00:26+08:00

    The Australian Not-for-Profit Workforce Study and its Analytics functions are provided to you by Learning for Purpose, an initiative led by the Centre for Social Impact, the University of Western Australia. Support is provided by the Australian Research Council (Linkage grant LP140100245), EY, Australian Scholarships Foundation, and Australian Executor Trustees.

    All partners are committed to making a meaningful impact at scale and understand that access and affordability are major barriers in the Not-for-Profit sector. We believe that addressing real challenges through outstanding research is advantageous to the real world. Using modern technology, we built the infrastructure and dramatically lowered the cost – it’s free.

    Unique value: How is this different?2019-08-19T02:04:11+08:00

    The Workforce Analytics Dashboard brings your organisational data to life. The data is generated through participation in the Australian Not-for-Profit Workforce Study. It is the most comprehensive research study of its kind on and for Not-for-Profit organisations, and their employees and volunteers working at all levels. Findings will be freely shared.

    The people behind this research are established scholars at renowned Australian academic institutions. There is no commercial interest. The remit is to apply scientific principles and evidence to the challenges and opportunities of the Not-for-Profit workforce to inform people, practice, policy and funding.

    There is a history of research. Dialogue with Not-for-Profit organisations, leaders, funders, peak bodies, and HR professionals did inform the study and the dashboard. It’s all designed to meet both scholarly rigor and applied needs. We envision this to continue into the future, so you can use this for as long as you like, again and again.

    Did we mention it’s free?

    Invite staff: How and how many to invite?2019-08-19T02:06:03+08:00

    Inviting your staff is easy! Share this URL and encourage your employees and volunteers to participate by clicking on START SURVEY. They simply select your organisation as their workplace. It’s that simple.

    Here are some templates you may wish to use. Just click on the icons.


    The Workforce Analytics Dashboard requires a minimum of 5 responses from your staff. You will get the most robust and meaningful insights when 25% or more of your employees and volunteers participate.

    It’s best to invite a cross-section of all organisational roles: (Top) your directors, executives, (Frontline) your case workers, doers, helpers, (In-between) your managers, professionals and so on. Why not invite them all, it’s free!

    The Workforce Analytics Dashboard will show you how many of your staff completed the survey. This is informative, so you know when to encourage more staff to complete the survey. You can use the Workforce Analytics Dashboard with as many people as you like.

    Data & privacy: Is this safe?2021-11-12T12:23:24+08:00

    Yes. Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) has approved this study (HRE2021-0222) and only the academic research team has access to the information provided. This is not a commercial survey, we do not sell or share your information, not even with our partner organisations. Data is used for research purposes only, securely stored, strictly confidential and subject to legal restrictions.

    No participating individual or organisation can be inferred from published information. Employers will never see if or what any specific employee or volunteer responded. Findings are reported anonymously, in aggregate form only in reports, scholarly articles, and applied dashboards so they can inform future Not-for-Profit practice, policy and funding.

    What you provide is protected through state-of-the-art cloud technology. All information is treated as confidential and will not be released by the investigator in any form that may identify people or organisations, unless required by law.
