Our research has shown that workplace wellbeing drives firm performance, helping organisations attract and retain talent longer as well as making workers better at what they do.”

Dr. Jan-Emmanuel De Neve, Professor of Economics and Director, Wellbeing Research Centre University of Oxford

Research has shown that happiness is a cause of success: happier people receive more positive reviews, are more productive, creative, earn higher incomes, and are less likely to burn out or be absent from work. Happier people are also more likely to get and keep jobs.”

Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Vice-Chair University of California, Riverside

When does a Work Wellbeing Score appear, and how?

The Work Wellbeing Score is available on an employer’s Indeed Company Page once there are at least 10 responses each for happiness, purpose, satisfaction, and stress for that company. When enough surveys are completed, the Work Wellbeing Score will automatically appear on the page.

The survey appears when an Indeed user goes to leave a company review for their employer. Respondents answer survey questions on a five-point scale, where 1=strongly disagree and 5=strongly agree. Points are assigned for each response on a scale ranging from 40 to 100.
