COTA Australia warmly thanks all who responded to the recent Mature Workforce survey. This topic clearly resonated with many e-news readers. A total of 837 responses were received. In addition to answering set questions, most respondents provided personal comments and stories. Plus, 45 percent of participants expressed a willingness to consider related engagement activities we plan to offer over the coming months.
The main survey comprised 6 multiple choice and one open-ended question. Respondents were also invited to provide further comment (views, concerns, suggestions) to several multiple-choice questions. This opportunity was readily accepted with an average of 204 personal commentaries appended to each of these questions. The open-ended question elicited 301 detailed responses.
