What Is Your Quality of Life at Work? 06-02


  1. How do you feel throughout the day at work? Now more than ever, workplace demands are exceeding our capacity to fulfill them, and it's having a significant effect on all areas of our lives.
    This short survey will help you determine how your workplace experience compares with that of others across five categories: health and well-being; trust and safety; enjoyment and satisfaction; focus and prioritization; and meaning and significance. The visualization you'll see at the end of the survey is based on your own behaviors, your relationship with your manager, and the organization in which you work.
    My colleague Christine Porath, an associate professor at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, and I will be offering analysis of the survey's trends and results on HBR.org. We will be making recommendations about how to improve the quality of your life at work. We’ll also explore what sorts of changes organizations must make to generate higher levels of employee engagement and sustainable productivity.
    The questions should take you about 10 minutes to answer.
