Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)s

Yes, the Health & Safety Authority (HSA) and National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) will not have access to individual or organisational data at any stage of the standard process. Data generated by the survey will be used to establish new scoring benchmarks and gain a greater understanding of psychosocial working conditions within Ireland. Whether administered online or offline, employees complete the questionnaire anonymously and any survey data collected is treated in the strictest confidence.

The data from all participating organisations will be collected and processed independently by Employee Wellbeing Ltd to produce standards for the Work PositiveCI. This will enable organisations using the survey in future to benchmark their performance against sector-specific standards. In addition, the data obtained will provide a valuable and much-needed overview of psychosocial working conditions and employee wellbeing throughout Ireland, which is of great interest from an academic standpoint. All individual and organisational data is collected and treated in the strictest confidence. The Health and Safety Authority or NTMA will not have access to any survey data at any stage of the project.

Yes - the questionnaires may be downloaded and administered in a paper-and-pencil format, where required.

To manually input data from paper-and-pencil questionnaires, the process is as follows: Click on your own Work PositiveCI survey weblink and input the data from one completed questionnaire. Once you have finished inputting the responses for one employee, close down the window. You now need to click on the survey link again to open a new window, allowing you to enter the data for the next employee. Repeat the above process until the data for all employees has been entered. For a small fee Employee Wellbeing Ltd can offer a data entry service with all completed printed surveys (use of reply-paid service, data-entry and Q.A.) for all or part of your organisation. The use of a third party service frees you from a labour intensive activity and provides additional assurances of confidentially for survey respondents.
