WRQoL scale helping researchers to explore the impact of Covid 19

The Work-Related Quality of Life (WRQoL) scale continues progress towards securing its position as the measure of choice for academic and applied researchers studying Quality of Working Life.

Most recently, papers using the WRQoL scale include several seeking to explore the way workers are responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, such as the article by  Mc Fadden et al., (2021).  Health and social care workers’ quality of working life and coping while working during the Covid-19 Pandemic: Analysis of positive coping and workrelated quality of life as resilience and protective factors impacting on wellbeingLink to pdf

The use of the WRQoL in studies into Covid-19 reflects its cross cultural applicability, given the various translations available. In 2020, published studies in a wide range of countries including Peru, China, Poland and the USA referred to the WRQoL as its use in various languages continued to grow. A bibliography of WRQoL and QoWL related references found on publicly available citation sites with a 2020 creation date included studies of hospital staff as well as occupational commitment of preschool teachers, call centre employees, civil servants and bank employees.
