Quality of Work Life survey opportunity

Posted by Human Resources on July 28, 2017 in Human Resources

Did you miss the chance to complete the Quality of Work Life (QWL) survey earlier this spring, or want to do it again?

Morneau Shepell, the survey provider, is providing faculty and staff the opportunity to complete the QWL survey and access your results and resources until May 2018. This is for employees’ information only, and no data will be collected by Dalhousie or Morneau Shepell.

To access the survey visit:

Each employee completing the survey receives their own individual assessment based on four pillars – physical, mental, life and work. This confidential personal report gives scores in each area, recommendations for individual action and suggested resources for further learning.

In June, Jasmine Walsh, Assistant Vice-President, Human Resources, presented the Quality of Work Life survey results, along with Jesse Adams, a representative of Morneau Shepell. If you missed the presentation, the video is now available online as well as the full QWL report. [PDF] [log-in required]

Senior leaders of each faculty and large administrative department that has sufficient participation (greater than 20 respondents) will receive their own QWL survey results over the summer. This is so they can better understand what employees want to see continue or change in their workplace, with Human Resources helping them develop action plans specific to their areas of focus.

Human Resources would like to hear from you about the QWL survey to better understand why this year’s survey had a lower response rate. If you would like to provide your feedback please send it in confidence to
