    No, it's not correct. I'm not sure what it's supposed to mean.
    You might mean "It's what all this hard work has been about." But that's a complicated sentence.

    No, it doesn't mean that. What you've written means (and is better expressed as) "What has all this hard work been about?"
    If I knew why you asked the original question, I might be able to help more.
