“As National Marketing & Business Development Manager at CPA Australia and later as General Manager Marketing & Business Development at the Law Institute of Victoria I worked closely with Di Marzio Research on a number of significant research projects. They could always be relied upon to deliver quality work of the highest standard. Because they understood our business they were able to provide valuable guidance and direction to assist with business strategy and decision-making. They are professionals who really know their stuff!"

Traffic Pty Ltd
"The name Di Marzio has been synonymous with quality in Market Research since the days of the Worthington Di Marzio partnership of the 1990’s. I have had the pleasure of working with Kim since those days and have always appreciated his meticulous attention to detail and the thoughtful insights that he brought to any project he has been involved with.
Now with Paul Di Marzio joining the firm many new areas of specialisation have been adopted in particular in the areas of Online Research and the use of Social Media and that same dedication to quality research has been maintained. Between them they have embraced the modern methodologies employed by the Market Research industry as well as continuing with the more traditional methods practiced over the years utilising over three decades of experience with the industry and their understanding of client needs.
The loyalty of their client base speaks volumes with regard to the value their experience and knowledge brings to each and every project they undertake. I look forward to a long association with both Kim and Paul in the years ahead."
Director - Analytical Services
"The team at Di Marzio is all about substance. What I love about working with them is that they focus on delivering rigorous simple insight without the fluff. They are pragmatic in their recommendations and I always feel like they are representing our company as if it were their own. I felt the work they did on our value proposition research was great value and delivered critical business insights. They are the perfect research partner for us and I highly recommend them to any company who is looking for data and insights to help inform their business decisions."
"As a small organisation running on a tight budget in a niche area (CSR) it's not easy finding existing research, or funds to conduct a major study. But I am committed to keeping up with consumer trends that impact my clients, so Di Marzio's Omnibus survey has been a godsend. It's given me solid stats to back up gut feel, as well as being able to update pre-GFC stats. If you have a lingering question the Omnibus is a brilliant and cost effective way to get the answer."

What does a thriving workplace look like?
Each year approximately one in five Australians report experiencing a mental health issue and around 45% of Australians will experience a mental health condition over their lifetime. (ABS 2007). Given that most Australians are employed at some point in their life, it is expected that every Australian worker will be directly or indirectly affected by mental health issues in the workplace. The workplace therefore provides an ideal setting to promote positive mental health and wellbeing so all Australian workers are supported to thrive at work
SuperFriend's Indicators of a Thriving Workplace survey has set a new benchmark across Australia using a set of 38 desired state indicators. The latest survey measured the views of 5,000 Australian workers revealing we are just over halfway towards the optimal state in Australia.
Across the four key domains (which the research identified as key components impacting workplace mental health and well-being) it was discovered that workers perceive the areas of Leadership and Connectedness to be more progressed in workplaces compared to Policies and Practices and Capabilities and Culture.
Interestingly, there are some organisations who stand out from the crowd. A group of workers (12%) reported that 80% or more of the desired state indicators were definitely present at their workplace. These findings help us understand what the best organisations are doing to promote optimal health and wellbeing. Key characteristics include…
- Employees being friendly and courteous (92%)
- Managers are accessible and listen (86%)
- The organisation prioritises work life balance and are sensitive to the needs of those who have children or others to care for (85%)
- The organisation makes an effort to help employees find purpose and meaning in their work (84%)
- They have policies and practices against workplace bullying and harassment (82%)
- Creating a culture which encourages open discussion about issues that affect mental health and wellbeing (80%)
This research has provided valuable insight about the current state of the Australian workforce and the results can be used to assist business leaders to identify what a mentally healthy workplace looks like, how they can progress their organisation towards it and what they can do to support their workers to thrive.
Dr Nerida Joss (Insights Strategist at SuperFriend) and Paul Di Marzio were pleased to have presented the results to this research at the 2018 AMSRS Festival of Research Conference in August. You can click on the image below to find out more details.
