Swinburne x Jobsbank Research Project Survey Launch – September 2022

This is your invitation to be part of first-of-its-kind research into social procurement in Australia.

For the first time since the Social Procurement Framework was launched in 2018, research will map attitudes towards and understanding of the Framework.

  • How are concepts of social impact, inclusive employment and diversity understood and regarded by employers?
  • How is the Social Procurement Framework being used to support meaningful social change within Australian businesses?
  • What are the opportunities and challenges presented by using the SPF to shift business practices?

Research is now underway to explore the answers to these questions as part of the Swinburne x Jobsbank partnership, and it’s time for your voice to be heard.

By participating in this first-of-its-kind research from leading Swinburne academics Dr Nives Zubcevic-Basic, Dr Adam Karg and Associate Professor Eva Kyndt, you will be contributing to a better understanding of social impact hiring and purchasing in Victoria.

Committing to inclusive employment practices can be life changing for those experiencing barriers to employment. Including Aboriginal-owned businesses in your supply chain can ensure sustainable jobs for entire communities.

And if we know what businesses need from the Social Procurement Framework, we can create an Australia in which doing the right thing is the simple choice.  

Please complete the survey by clicking on this link.

The survey will take 8-12 minutes to complete and is open for completion until Monday 5 October. Participation is anonymous; more information about privacy and how your responses will be used is available at the survey link.
