IPA Well-being Index
– Focus on employee well-being – part of IPA Nordic’s pulse surveys
Employee well-being with IPA Well-being
The findings on well-being indicate that organisations want to create an environment where people are engaged in their jobs. It is therefore necessary to ensure that creative and talented employees see their work as meaningful.
Secondly, organisations want to create an environment where people have autonomy and feel able to make the decisions that affect the quality of their work, rather than having managers make most of the choices for them.
Finally, and most importantly, organisations will try to ensure that opportunities for task variety are present, meaning that an individual’s work should not be so monotonous that it does not stimulate thought and demand attention
