Many bank employees do not record their time. The conditions for this are set out in an agreement between the social partners in the banking industry. A survey, in the form of a self-test, is available as an accompanying health protection measure. The social partners are thus making an active contribution to identifying, preventing and eliminating psychosocial risks at work.

Already thought about your health today?
"Work without limits is not healthy. That's why it's important to know your own limits. The health survey helps to identify your personal situation."
"Mobile flexible working is attractive, but also poses risks to mental health. Evaluate yourself and discover the opportunities and dangers."
"If you work a lot, you need rest. What does this balance look like for you? The health survey shows you."
"The health survey is a valuable contribution to the prevention of interested self-harm in banks."
"Good working conditions are relevant for health. The health survey shows where health-promoting implementation is successful and where there is a need for action."
"Thanks to personalized feedback, you can identify opportunities and risks and do something good for your health."
This is what lies behind the health survey...
Not recording working time can be both a curse and a blessing. Where you have a lot of creative freedom, increased pressure to perform may show up elsewhere. This can have an impact on your well-being. The self-test shows you with a simple traffic light system whether everything is in the green zone for you or whether there is a need for action.
Under certain conditions, bank employees can waive the recording of working time. This can bring advantages, but also risks. In the interests of active health protection, a self-test on psychosocial stress is available to all employees who choose not to record their working time.
To measure how employees feel at work, two factors are examined. On the one hand, the health-promoting factors, and on the other hand, the health-critical factors must be looked at. They determine to a large extent whether we feel good at work or not. The health survey examines both sides and shows how they influence each other.
Those who do not record their working hours can regularly take part in the ARWT survey. The overall results provide an indication of the extent to which action is required. In addition, you will receive individual feedback that is only accessible to you personally. The evaluation is carried out by Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Andreas Krause and Cosima Dorsemagen. Interested banks can also request a specific evaluation for their own bank, which will be provided in the form of a dashboard. In all evaluations, at least 20 individuals are grouped together. It is not possible to draw conclusions about the response behavior of individual participants.
The basis of the survey is the so-called impact model. On the one hand, it shows stressors. These are factors that can impair our well-being. On the other hand, it also shows aspects that promote health. These are factors that positively influence our well-being. You want to know what exactly lies behind both topics? Read on here!
As a banking institution, you can view your organization's results by gaining access to a dashboard. Such evaluations are possible if at least 20 people from your organization have participated. The Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz offers advice on how to interpret the results. Please contact Cosima Dorsemagen or Andreas Krause if needed.
If you take part in the survey, you will receive individual written feedback immediately afterwards. A traffic light system provides orientation: The topics of the survey are colored green, yellow or red depending on the extent of your answers.
