797 people have read the post about the survey into what makes a job boring....

    Hi Russ – I’ve put the original post in today’s newsletter to see if you get any more responses, although in my experience surveys always have a very low engagement rate, even if you stress that they’re quick/simple/relevant, as people still struggle to see the benefit to them – we’ve experimented with different incentives, but overall it just seems to be a matter of giving wider context to why the survey should be of interest (part of some research which you will then share, developing or improving site/tool functionality…)
