Quality of Working Life Survey

22 December 2007

Every member of staff is being asked to take part in a Quality of Working Life Survey and play their part in contributing to a healthier workplace.

Joining thousands of other higher education staff across the UK completing, the online survey is part of a national benchmark for Quality of Working Life (QoWL) currently being established for the university sector, and coordinated by Portsmouth University.

Staff are asked to measure a broad range of factors across both work and non-work life domains, including Job and Career Satisfaction, General Well-Being, Home-Work Interface, Stress at Work, Control at Work and Working Conditions.

James Cole, Assistant Director Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Unit said: "The Quality of Working Life survey helps organisations promote good practice and plan change which can lead to a healthier workplace.

"Participation in this important study will be very helpful as we will be able to use the feedback from University staff to improve our own working environment as well as benchmark the University against the university sector as a whole."

All participation in the study is voluntary and confidential and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. To complete the survey, visit:
