Global mental wellbeing study to demonstrate impact of pandemic and inform support for research sector

The Research Society has partnered with the MRS in the UK and the Insights Association in the U.S. to launch a unique international initiative to examine mental wellbeing in market and social research, supported by insight agency Opinium.

The survey results will bring to life the varied impact of the coronavirus crisis across three countries, highlight how workplaces can support people working in research and shape guidance on how mental health wellbeing support can be improved. 

To be part of this important study please take time to complete the survey here.

Please share this link with your colleagues, friends, clients in the community so we can get as many people as involved as possible. The more people who take part, the more comprehensive the analysis and recommendations will be.

The study will build on the pioneering work conducted by the Society’s partner, the MRS and MRS accredited company Opinium in July 2019, which found that 85% of research practitioners had struggled with their mental wellbeing in the previous year.  That report, Opening the Conversation: Mental Wellbeing in Market Research, can be downloaded here.
