Determine assessment resources

Choose the assessment resources that are suitable for your organization



Organizational Review

A review of existing policies and practices related to the protection of your employees' psychological health, this is the first step toward determining the extent to which your workplace is psychologically safe.

This is suitable for your organization if:

  • Your organization has fewer than 25 employees
  • Your organization has recently conducted an employee survey
  • Organizational or procedural barriers make it difficult to carry out a survey at this time

Initial Scan

A 6-item employee questionnaire that indicates to what extent your employees are stressed or satisfied at work. This Initial Scan can be used as a precursor to, or if you are unable or hesitant to use, the more comprehensive Survey.

This is suitable for your organization if:

  • You want a quick snapshot of stress/satisfaction and mental health culture at your organization
  • Your organization has recently conducted an employee survey that did not include any assessment of stress/satisfaction and mental health culture at work and at this time you want only a general overview
  • There are concerns about the cost, resources or logistics required to have employees complete the more comprehensive Survey

Survey

A comprehensive, 68-item questionnaire administered to all employees within an organization or work unit, the Survey provides an index of performance across the psychosocial factors.

This is suitable for your organization if:

  • You or your organization lack the data or objectivity required to complete the Organizational Review accurately
  • You have limited resources and can only invest in either the Organizational Review or the Survey
  • You feel your needs would be best served by a comprehensive risk assessment from the employee perspective only

Organizational Review + Initial Scan

This is suitable for your organization if:

  • Your goal is to undertake a psychosocial risk assessment that identifies whether there is a need for a more comprehensive Survey from the employee perspective.

Organizational Review + Survey

This is the recommended approach. Conduct the Organizational Review plus the Survey if you are seeking a comprehensive psychosocial risk assessment. You must complete both in order to generate a Comparison Report that incorporates both employer and employee perspectives.
