NASUWT Wellbeing at Work Survey
In response to the concerns of members about the pressures and stresses experienced at work, NASUWT has created a Wellbeing at Work Survey. The survey is intended to assist members identify the pressure points associated with their work.
It is generally recognised that work enhance peoples’ lives. However, it can also be a great source of pressure. While pressure can be a positive and motivating factor, problems arise when it is experienced to excess and pressure tips over to become stress. There is no good level of stress.
Stress affects different people in different ways and work that one person finds normal another may find stressful. Stress is not an illness – it is a state. If stress becomes too excessive and prolonged, mental and physical illness may develop.
To complete the survey you will need to login to the website. This will require you to register if you have not already done so. It will assist you during the registration process to have your NASUWT membership number available.
You will be able to print your responses to the survey questions so that, if necessary, you can consider what remedial action you need to take.
The survey will take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete. The Union recommends that all members complete the survey.
The survey investigates issues relating to:
- the demands of your work;
- the amount of control you have over your work;
- the amount of support you receive at work;
- the working relationships you have with colleagues;
- your experience of pupil behaviour;
- your role at work;
- your involvement in workplace changes;
- the pressures and stresses associated with your work.
It is not necessary for you to answer questions in sections that are of no interest to you.
