As the Disability Employment Strategy has been implemented for almost three years, the aim of this research is to evaluate the outcomes of the Strategy across Commonwealth departments and agencies and to find areas of improvement.
Having had research experience in dealing with sensitive topics, Wallis was well-placed in conducting this research. Our ability to complete the research within a tight time-line and our flexible approach allowed for the successful completion of the evaluation.
Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment
Wallis has won and retained this project because of our ability to develop and deliver innovative data collection solutions, as well as the high level of support we provide to the infrastructure administrators who complete the census.
Australian National University
This study of problem gamblers and their families was commissioned in 2014 by the Australian National University (ANU) with the objective of improving the services available to assist them. Its aim is to work out what motivates people to seek professional help for gambling issues and then to study why some gamblers enter and continue treatment for their problem while others don’t.
Commonwealth Department of Jobs and Small Business
This study is an excellent example of one of Wallis’ key strengths – working in collaboration with others to get the best results for our clients. For this study we partnered with specialist management consulting firm ACIL Allen Consulting to review the closure of the automotive manufacturing sector in Australia. The project involves gauging the attitudes, perspectives, expectations, mental health and wellbeing of automotive workers and their families and support networks as they go through the process of retrenchment and into other activities.
Commonwealth Department of Education and Training
Wallis has interviewed and managed one of Australia’s largest Longitudinal Surveys since 2000. In that time the survey has changed dramatically and Wallis has ensured that the information collected is compatible with the past, even though the mode of collection has changed. The majority of young people are still recruited to the study while they are still at high school. We have consistently averaged a retention rate over 90% by matching the way we interview them and allow them to interact with us once recruited.
