Repository of Workplace Well-Being Measures


Numerous scales measuring workplace well-being exist. Some of them focus on individual aspects of worker well-being (e.g., satisfaction) while others focus on aspects of the organizational environment that are likely to promote employee’s well-being. Still other measures bring together an assessment of the organizational climate, organizational practices, and individual mental and physical health.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of selected measures commonly used in research investigating workplace well-being.
