Model Answer:
I don’t really like to participate in any kind of survey or quiz, primarily because they usually take way more time to finish than their expected estimated time. Having said that, however, I have taken part in some useful surveys which, I thought, could actually make some difference in our lives. Today, I would like to talk about one such survey which I took online about a couple of months ago.

Anyway, the online survey, I participated in, was about employee welfare and wellness programmes, and if I remember it correctly, the survey was prepared and conducted by a prominent, non-profit employee welfare organization in my country. I had received the survey in my email. It is worth mentioning that, I receive such online surveys in my email pretty much on a regular basis which I simply get rid of without a second thought, because I find them to be redundant.

I was thinking the same when I received that particular survey. However, something back in my mind just kept pushing me to go through the survey questions just for once as it was delivered by a rather prominent non-profit NGO of my country, and as it was talking about the overall welfare and wellness of all the workers in my country. After all, I am also a full-time employee, and I have also suffered from some terrible burnouts at my work at one point or another in my life. I took part in the survey also because the questions there were rather short and concise, and it contained only about 8-10 questions.

I felt a bit relieved and happy after participating in the survey, mainly because it was kind of directly related to my personal circumstances and situation, while also making me more confident about my professional life at the same time. Besides, it also opened up my eyes to some other work-related issues which could potentially and negatively affect my life both in the short run as well as long run.
