QoWL Services to Universities

QoWL offers a range of services designed to support universities’ efforts in improving well-being and reducing stress at work.

We have worked with many UK universities and we have the best and most up-to-date set of benchmark data for stress, well-being and quality of working life factors for university staff.

While some of our university clients have wanted a comprehensive and bespoke survey service, while others have wanted to focus on measuring particular aspects of the work environment such as stress or well-being.

Universities choose QoWL because:

  • Our survey tool, with its 3 psychometrically valid and reliable scales, is the best tool available to assess well-being, stress and broader quality of working life in universities,
  • The quality and quantity of our benchmarking data is the best in the sector,
  • The ability of our survey tool to pinpoint problems (and areas of strength) related to stress and well-being,
  • Our approach is professional but friendly – we’re good to work with,
  • Our services are flexible and good value.

If your University is interested in assessing stress, well-being or quality of working life in your university, or in a broader staff survey, please contact us using our enquiry form. We’ll be delighted to help and can give you more information on our services and pricing.
