Work and Life Assessment

Our Work and Life Assessment was designed was designed to help supervisors and employees understand their work and personal life experiences.  This survey is taken as a pre- and post-assessment by both managers and employees as part of our FSST training program.  It can also be utilized as a stand alone assessment for organizations who wish to gauge their work-life culture.

This assessment can be done individually, or as multi-rater feedback such as in manager – subordinate dyads, in teams, or as a diagnostic tool for organizational continuous improvement and coaching on work-life, stress, occupational health, and performance enhancement.

When this assessment is administered to both supervisors and employees, results typically reveal that supervisors and employees have very different views regarding the level of support offered by supervisors. Overall, supervisors see themselves as more supportive than employees do. Our research has found there is a perceptual gap between what supervisors believe they are doing and how employees see them. When we provide this feedback to supervisors, they tend to show increased motivation to learn methods for becoming more supportive of their employees.
