Navigating Work-Life Balance Survey

The pandemic has drawn new attention to issues related to work-life balance.

The Workforce Planning Board is conducting a survey to better understand the challenges residents face achieving a healthy balance between their home life and work life.

The Navigating Work-Life Balance in Grand Erie Survey is open to anyone, aged 16+, living in Brantford, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Six Nations and New Credit.

Work-Life balance means the demands of a person’s job and personal life are equal, neither more important than the other.

This survey could help identify supports residents need from employers or community organizations to achieve a healthy balance. It may also help people to identify changes they could make in their own lives.

Anyone who completes the survey can enter their name in a draw to win one of 15 Health and Wellness prizes, some of which were provided by community partners shown below. There will be weekly draws.


Survey questions cover many topics, including:

  • How much time is spent daily on work, caregiving, chores, exercise, spending time with friends, etc.;
  • A person’s satisfaction with their current life and work balance;
  • Whether someone works from home and if this has increased satisfaction;
  • If someone feels overwhelmed or burnt out;
  • And how people cope with stress in their lives.

The survey is open until the end of August.

All survey information is confidential.

Updates on the project and survey results will be posted on this page.
