My academic colleagues, psychologists at the University of Portsmouth, have been researching Quality of Working Life (or QoWL for short) for many years. They developed a theory and framework for QoWL and psychometric tools for measuring it. They've now generously made these survey tools freely available along with a scoring key and guide.
Quality of Working Life is that part of overall quality of life that is influenced by work. It's more than just job satisfaction or work happiness, but the widest context in which an employee would evaluate their work environment.
I've placed more information and links to where you can download the tools on our Free QoWL Tools page.
