Based on previous research, we know that ethical culture of an organisation strengthens, among other things, its capacity to innovate and supports the well-being of managers.

The current study investigates how different organisational practices and the ethics of organisational culture are related to the quality of sleep, job commitment and the intention to change jobs.

We are living through a wave of voluntary resignations, the pandemic continues to plague us and the whole world is in the midst of major upheavals. Key issues for HR include organisational culture, inclusion and diversity, solutions for burnout prevention, resilience, wellbeing at work and employee engagement.

In addition, the European Union has increased regulation, for example through data protection and money laundering regulations. In July 2019, another step was taken with the introduction of the long-awaited Whistleblower Protection Directive (EU) 2019/1318.

How companies address these issues in a way that supports long-term performance is key. The general public also expects companies to treat employees fairly in a rapidly changing world and in the midst of crises.

How do ethics and regulatory compliance interact with workplace well-being?

This study identifies key actions taken in the organisation to improve ethics and compliance, and measures well-being at work using a range of indicators. Respondents get an overview of the issues that should be taken into account when developing their organisation and provides an opportunity to assess the current situation of their employer.

The survey will be conducted on a European scale. Data will be collected during 2022 and 2023 and the first results will be reported during 2023.

Please respond to the questionnaire, it takes approximately 8 minutes.

Thanks for your help in advance!
