Welcome! We define well-being as a combination of wellness strategies, amenities, practices, and policies that serve the whole person.
Your feedback on this survey will help us establish an
empirical model of workplace well-being.
 
I primarily work in: *


 
In which industry do you work? Please select the option that best applies to you. *


 
In which setting is your workplace? *


 
We conducted a literature review of leading academic, government, and commercial publications on the topic of well-being. Based on this review, and on our own experience, we are positing a model of workplace well-being that includes 11 key elements.

In the following section, you'll be asked to rate the importance of these elements, as well as select the ones that are most and least important to you. Please read how we define these elements to understand how they might be represented in a workplace.

1. Socialization
Places and policies that support both spontaneous and planned social interaction in the workplace (e.g. cafes, coffee bars, game rooms, cafeterias, outdoor spaces, roof decks)

2. Physical health
Places and policies that support and encourage healthy behaviors and movement in the workplace (e.g. fitness centers, sit-stand or treadmill desks, interconnecting stairs, doctor’s offices, bicycle storage, outdoor walking paths)

3. Pride
Environmental features that promote a feeling of satisfaction with and connection to your organization’s mission and culture (e.g. art installations that tell story of company history, brand expressions in the environment, digital signage recognizing employee accomplishments)

4. Emotional health
Places and policies that support mental health, rejuvenation, relaxation, and stress relief in the workplace (e.g. “technology-free” zones, meditation rooms, prayer rooms)

5. Sustainability
Practices and policies that support long-term ecological balance by giving consideration to the environmental and social impact of a company’s physical footprint (e.g. energy efficiency, water efficiency, waste reduction, non-toxic building materials)

6. Continuous learning
Spaces and policies that support continuous skill development, training, mentorship, and learning in the workplace (e.g. training rooms, makerspaces, innovation labs, cutting-edge technologies, research facilities)

7. Choice
The freedom to work where, how, and when you want using alternative workplace settings and strategies (e.g. collaboration rooms, focus/quiet rooms, huddle rooms, open lounges, touch-down spaces, mobility programs)

8. Security
Design considerations and practices that instill a feeling of safety and security in your workplace (e.g. security turnstiles, onsite building security, clear exit routes in case of emergency)

9. Comfort
Design features that support individual comfort (e.g. access to natural light, ability to control temperature and noise, comfortable furniture)

10. Stress-free technology
Spaces and policies that enable seamless technology use in the workplace to support job responsibilities (e.g. wireless internet, onsite tech support, interactive display technologies, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs, virtual meeting support)

11. Convenience
Spaces and policies that support work-life balance and personal needs by providing onsite convenience (e.g. mother’s rooms, childcare centers, banking services, concierge services)

 
Please rate the importance of the following workplace elements to your well-being using the following scale:

1 = not at all important
2 = slightly important
3 = moderately important
4 = very important
