Workplace Mental Health Limited will produce a survey which we will ask your employees to complete within a given time (the number of people surveyed depends on the size and structure of your organisation). All completed surveys will be directed back to us to ensure the anonymity of individuals.
The survey has been developed to tease out individual feelings, particularly around instances that we know are risk factors in causing stress to an individual or collectively in the workplace.
The survey will consider:
- The working environment
- Employee roles and responsibilities
- Workplace demands
- Flexibility & control
- Support & resources
- Change & communication
- Conflict management
- External stresses
- Inter-generational differences and values
- Work-life balance
It’s quite normal for employers to feel uncomfortable about employees airing their views as there are always negative implications that can arise – That is perfectly normal!
It’s our job to ask the right questions to understand perceptions versus actual and policy versus personal preferences. Sometimes stresses arise from inherited views including cultural and generational values that can cause underlying conflict separately from the normal demands of work.
Childcare issues, finances, family relationships and many other social and psychological factors all have a part to play in our work-life balance. It’s how we recognise and support individuals that is important.
We will also request for other relevant information that you may have including:
- Absentee reports
- Policy’s and procedural documents
