Anyone involved in project management can take the survey here.

What’s in it for participants?

First, you’ll be helping the PM profession complete fundamental research into how happiness at work impacts PM success rates.  Articles and papers will be developed, based on survey results, and shared with PM World Journal readers.

Second, each person that completes the survey…it takes only 10 minutes to do so…will immediately receive their individual results free online and may access a PDF of their results via email!  They will be able to retake the survey as many times as they wish over the next twelve months to monitor their progress in building their own happiness at work.

Do you have ten minutes to complete a free survey?  To find out if you are happy at work?  No, it’s not an oxymoron!

Is happiness at work, well-being at work, a key to sustainable high levels of performance in the workplace across sectors and industries? Help these researchers find out.

Confirm what’s working well for you now and where there are opportunities for you to improve your experience during work, and for your work performance through the science of happiness at work.
