Run your Work Positive Survey



A WPCI survey can provide a valuable and accurate assessment of employees’ opinions on their working environment.  It can also produce clear information on ways to improve employee wellbeing.

The Work PositiveCI survey uses verified and validated indicators to measure employee wellbeing and six key work areas that organisations should monitor and manage to promote positive employee wellbeing and help prevent work-related stress.  These six areas are:


  1. Demands - this includes issues such as workload, work patterns and the work environment
  2. Control - how much say the person has in the way they do their work
  3. Support - this includes the encouragement and resources provided by the organisation, line management and colleagues
  4. Relationships - this includes promoting positive working to avoid conflict and dealing with unacceptable behaviour
  5. Role - whether people understand their role within the organisation and whether the organisation ensures that they do not have conflicting roles
  6. Change - how organisational change (large or small) is managed and communicated in the organisation


Work PositiveCI also measures employee wellbeing using a composite wellbeing index created through a combination of two validated tools, the PHQ4 and the WHO-5 Well-being Index.

If the Steering Group feel that employees are exposed to critical incidents during work the Work PositiveCI Critical Incident survey should be utilised. This survey incorporates additional questions exploring the frequency and type of critical incidents experienced within their job, and the types of support measures that may be most helpful.

You can select the version of Work PositiveCI you wish to deploy when you create a new survey.
