Measuring organisational well-being and evaluating participation strategies is essential for understanding their impact on workers’ satisfaction, mental health, work-life balance, and performance.

To address these aspects, we introduce the BESt Work Life organisational climate survey, encompassing sixty statements that capture the multidimensional well-being of workers alongside ten statements to gauge participation levels based on existing literature.

The analysis of 790 responses from 26 organisations reveals a positive relationship between workers’ participation levels and well-being.

Our research  offers valuable insights for fostering well-being, participation, and gender analysis to create inclusive and thriving workplaces.
