Mentally healthy working environment survey:

Thank you very much for accessing this page. Please help us map the working environment in your country / company by filling in as many as possible of the fields in this survey.

This survey is focusing solely on mentally healthy working environment conditions in your company. It will take about 10 to 30 minutes to complete, depending how much you write in each text field.

Please feel free to jump over questions you dont want to answer. It is important though to get as much demograpic data from you as possible, as the survey does not make much sense unless we know your nationality, gender, age, your position in the company etc. So we will appreciate if you will supply us with as much personal data as possible. If your answer is part of a company research, you do not need to fill in all the contact details of the company. But please remember to fill in the company name and your position and the department you work in, in the company.

Responsible for this survey is Kim Pedersen.

The information provided will only be used for statistical purposes. Personal information will not be given to any third party at any time. The text part will be used in connection suggestions of improvement. No information that can reveal a persons identity will be given to any third party.

Work related stress level
Stress is not in itself a disease but the body's defence to excessive physical or mental strain in the working environment. Stress is the body's attempt to survive the damages. This defence is not meant to be in action permanently but only for a short periode of time. If it continues for a long time, it can damage the health severely. In a work place, stress is never and should never be only one persons problem and has to be addressed.
