Workplace Well-Being in the Public Sector
The Workplace Well-Being in the Public Sector surveys chart working the working conditions and workplace well-being of public sector employees in Finland. The Workplace Well-Being in the Public Sector surveys are a follow-up to the Kuntatyöntekijöiden työhyvinvointi surveys ("Workplace Well-Being of Municipal Employees") which were carried out between 2008 and 2012. The respondents include employees from municipalities, government agencies and churches encompassing various professional fields. The surveys are conducted every other year by Keva, the pension provider for public sector employees in Finland. The first survey was conducted in 2014.
The surveys collect information on the workplace well-being, workload management, managerial work, and work processes of public sector employees. Other areas of interest are the functioning of work communities, positive attitude towards development and perceived violence, inappropriate treatment, and equality. The content of the surveys has mostly remained the same throughout the collection period. The surveys enable the monitoring of changes in the working conditions of the target group.
