Wellbeing at work in the age of COVID-19

We’re in the midst of an unexpected, unprecedented storm. What’s worse, we have no visibility. What will change? How much? When? Who will survive the storm, and who will come out stronger? Join our unique research project with Aalto University and Hanken School of Economics to better understand what happens to the wellbeing and cohesion of your workforce, so you can better prepare for the future.



Research focus: global knowledge workers

Our research question reads: “How does work related mental and social wellbeing change over time during Covid-19, the economic crisis and in a forced virtual work situation?” We target global knowledge workers – executives, managers and employees – and aim to help leaders and HR gain visibility into how wellbeing and team dynamics develop through the crisis.


Research design: longitudinal survey

Our research is longitudinal in nature – we conduct the same survey 2-4 times to the same individuals with 1-2 months between survey rounds. The first survey will be launched in April. Our survey is based on the Aalto University Exponential research database with over 3,000 respondents – one of the largest datasets in the world on organisational wellbeing and performance.
