Measuring and cultivating resilience and wellbeing of educators

COVID-19 and changing pressures are impacting our teachers

Given the ongoing pandemic and its impact on educators (specifically in the primary and secondary school space), having a better understanding of how teachers view their wellbeing and their levels of resilience will inform better practices and policies within schools to support them. ​

Since the changes to teaching methods brought about by the pandemic, teachers have raised concerns about their wellbeing due to physical isolation, excessive screen time, workspace and dealing with stress.*​

Knowing how your teachers and staff feel provides schools with valuable information to understand what kind of support they need. These insights can also help you implement changes to improve teacher wellbeing, which can lead to higher retention rates, improved productivity and increased engagement.

Measuring wellbeing and resilience

Insync in association with Press Ganey has created a wellbeing and resilience survey based on our research partner Press Ganey’s validated survey tool. This survey focuses on identifying and understanding how teachers view their wellbeing and resilience, to inform better practices and policies within the school to support them, while also allowing for informed decisions to be made that can not only positively impact your teachers, but the students and your school as well. Further, an Australia-specific benchmark for the results will be available, as more schools participate.

But first, how do we measure wellbeing and resilience?

In its simplest form, wellbeing is our ability to feel good and function effectively. High wellbeing leads to social, energetic, cooperative and likeable individuals and having strong foundations of wellbeing is paramount for all workplaces.

Insync focuses on the below elements when measuring wellbeing:

Wellbeing indicators

Strong wellbeing provides us with the resilience to navigate the natural highs and lows we all experience in our lives, whilst enabling us to flourish intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. In like manner, resilience is the ability to recover quickly from difficulties and adversity. Insync’s survey tool examines how teachers engage with students, and if they are able to disconnect from their work during rest times.
