Measuring Well-Being at Work

Numerous scales have been developed to measure workplace well-being. Different scales focus on different aspects of well-being, ranging from individual aspects of worker well-being (e.g., satisfaction) to factors related to well-being (e.g., burnout). Other scales assess potential sources of well-being in the workplace (i.e., factors that are likely to promote employee’s well-being). Some measures are even more comprehensive and assess not only individual levels of well-being, but also organizational climate, organizational practices, and other aspects of an individual’s mental and physical health.

The following list represents examples of scales to measure well-being at work.
