How the survey is scored

This Deep Dive survey addresses four criteria of Wellbeing: Mental WellbeingEmotional Wellbeing, Physical Wellbeing and Connected Wellbeing. By listening to your employees along these key dimensions, you will be able to uncover the detailed specifics of innovation-related issues in your organisation.

Asking 12 questions on a 5-point Likert scale, from strongly agree to strongly disagree, this Deep Dive first finds each survey respondents’ total score. This is based on the proportion of positive answers (‘agree’ and ‘strongly agree’). Combining these scores, the average over all respondents is calculated, deriving the overall Wellbeing score.

This survey also contains four open-text questions, to understand and add context to the scores and support your findings.
