Questions to include on your Job stress assessment questionnaire

1. Basic Information

This section collects the basic demographic and work-related information of the respondent.

  • What is your name?
  • What is your age?
  • What is your gender? (Male, Female, Prefer not to say)
  • What is your job title?
  • How long have you been in your current position?

2. Work Environment

This section aims to understand the physical and emotional conditions of the respondent's workplace.

  • How would you describe your work environment? (Stressful, Relaxed, Competitive, Supportive, Other)
  • How many hours do you work in a week?
  • Does your job require you to work overtime? (Yes, No)
  • How often do you take breaks during work hours? (Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Often, Always)

3. Job Satisfaction

These questions investigate the level of satisfaction and fulfillment the respondent gets from their job.

  • How satisfied are you with your job?
  • Do you feel recognized for your work contributions? (Yes, No)
  • Do you feel your job matches your skills and interests? (Yes, No, Partially)

4. Stress Levels

This section measures the respondent's perceived stress level and its impact on their work performance and personal life.

  • On a scale from 1 to 10, how would you rate your overall work stress level?
  • What are the major sources of your work-related stress?
  • How does job stress affect your work performance? (Negatively, Positively, No effect)
  • How does job stress affect your personal life? (Negatively, Positively, No effect)

The question "What are the major sources of your work-related stress?" is important as it can help the HR department identify common stressors in the workplace and find solutions to reduce them.

Other question ideas

When you are creating your Job stress assessment questionnaire, here are some additional questions you may want to consider. These won't apply in every case, but should give you some ideas as you build out your form.
  • Do you feel your work-life balance is: Poor, Average, Good, Excellent?

    • This question could reveal if employees have a healthy work-life balance, which directly impacts stress levels. If the balance is poor, it may indicate that work demands are excessive and leading to stress.
  • How often do you exercise or engage in physical activities weekly?

    • Exercise is known to reduce stress. If respondents indicate they don't have time to exercise, it might suggest that work is taking up too much of their time, potentially contributing to higher stress levels.
  • Do you feel able to openly discuss stress and mental health issues at your workplace? (Yes, No, Unsure)

    • This question can illustrate if there is an open, supportive culture around mental health in the workplace. If many employees feel they cannot discuss these issues, it could be a red flag that the company culture needs improvement.
  • How would you rate the effectiveness of the current stress management resources provided by your company?

    • Understanding the effectiveness of the current resources can help HR to improve their programs or implement new ones that better address the employees' stress-related needs.
  • During the last month, how often have you felt unable to control the important things in your life due to work stress? (Very often, Often, Sometimes, Rarely, Never)

    • This question measures the impact of work stress on the employee's personal life. If many respondents indicate they often feel unable to control important aspects of their life due to work stress, it signals a serious issue that needs immediate attention.
  • If you could change one thing about your job to reduce stress, what would it be?

    • This open-ended question allows employees to provide specific feedback on how their job could be improved to reduce stress. The responses could guide HR in making targeted improvements.

Things to consider

  1. Confidentiality - Ensure the form guarantees confidentiality to encourage honest and accurate responses. Respondents may be reluctant to share personal feelings about work stress if they fear repercussions.
  2. Simplicity - Make the form easy to understand and complete. Avoid jargon or complex vocabulary. Clear and straightforward questions lead to better responses.
  3. Mobile-friendly - As many people use mobile devices today, ensure the form is mobile-friendly. This will increase the response rate.
  4. Validation - Use HTML5 validation to ensure that all fields are filled out correctly, improving the quality of your data.
  5. Diverse Response Types - Make use of different field types such as text, number, dropdown, and radio buttons to make the form engaging and easier to fill.
  6. Instructions - Provide clear instructions on how to fill out the form and what the different scales mean, if used.
  7. Progress Bar - If the form is long, include a progress bar to show how far respondents have completed. This helps keep respondents motivated to finish the form.
