You are invited to take part in a research study to understand the levels of individual thriving at work (adapted from Carol Ryff's work) that occurs for different types of people across different work contexts. In order to participate in this study, you must be of working age in your state or country and work at least 10 hours a week.

If you choose to participate, you can complete the study online by answering a question that gives your personal opinions/perspectives in a survey. There will also be optional demographic information at the end. The survey will take approximately 4-5 minutes to complete. 

This study does not involve risks beyond those in everyday life. However, you may choose not to answer any questions that make you feel uncomfortable, skip question(s), and/or leave the study at any time.

Participants who opt-in will receive details on how to get a personalized report at the end of the study period which concludes in April 2021; For those who do not want to opt-in, we anticipate your involvement will add to the body of knowledge related to human thriving at work.
