well-being at work concerns general life satisfaction and quality of life
Isolation is one of the most common issues raised by remote workers and can lead to lower levels of job satisfaction. Pulse survey is designed to help organisations survey employee well-being and identify issues that impact their well-being and engagement while working remotely or during times of abrupt change.
The Pulse survey measures eight scales related to personal and work adjustment, and potential determinants of adjustment specific to remote working.
Pulse helps identify the issues staff face while working remotely and helps organisations navigate and manage change.
What is the general well-being, life satisfaction and quality of life of your employees during this forced change?
Are your employees able to ignore distractions in the environment and focus on work in their new environment?
How connected do your employees feel to their colleagues and the organisation when at a distance?
Remote working is not a new concept and many progressive organisations already support it. A sudden change to working from home, without the usual transitional planning, brings a whole new set of challenges for employees and employers alike. Pulse Survey identifies the issues staff face while working remotely and helps organisations navigate and manage their well-being.
Pulse is designed to focus on employee well-being and in doing so probes aspects of remote work where organisations can have a direct impact on employee well-being. The survey seeks to answer the following questions:
Well-being: What is the general well-being, life satisfaction and quality of life of your employees during this forced change?
Work-life Balance: Are your employees able to switch off after work and maintain a healthy work-life balance?
Focus: Are your employees able to ignore distractions in the environment and focus on work in their new environment?
Work Achievement: Do your employees feel engaged in their work and motivated to do their best given their new situation?
Communication: What are your employees’ perceptions of organisational and leadership communication during this period?
Connectedness: How connected do your employees feel to their colleagues and the organisation when at a distance?
Support: What are your employees’ perceptions of support (both emotional and material) and recognition of their work undertaken remotely?
Security: Do your employees feel stable and secure and have trust in their organisation?
The pulse survey gathers anonymised group data, providing simple dashboard style feedback to organisations. To check to true pulse of an organisation it is recommended to administer regular pulse surveys to help manage feedback to staff and deal with issues arising. This can include refining internal communication strategies, providing opportunities for remote social interaction or establishing more regular check-ins, among other possible interventions depending on survey results.
