About the Project 

By being here, youʻre impacting generations.

The Hawaiʻi Quality of Life and Workplace Wellness Survey aims to assess well-being, quality of life, and workplace wellness in the diverse population of adults across the state of Hawai'i. Findings from this survey will identify strengths and challenges in these critical topics, thereby informing and targeting policies, programs, and reforms where they can have the greatest impact. 

In early 2024, we invite all state workers and community members to complete a short survey on a broad range of topics including disaster preparedness, neighborhood perceptions, food security, housing, family and community support and resources, education, workplaces, physical and mental health, adverse childhood experiences, and access to services.

Survey results will be turned into data tools and stories that can improve the quality of life locally by guiding decision-making for policymakers, state agencies, providers, community organizations, advocacy groups, foundations, researchers, and many others.

This project represents a unique partnership between the Health Policy Initiative at the Social Science Research Institute at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM) and the nation’s first Office of Wellness and Resilience (OWR) in the Office of Governor Josh Green.
