The VAZ Survey questionnaire focuses on working conditions that are relevant when waiving the the recording of working time in banks. The central contents of the questionnaire were determined in 2020/2021 via interviews with bank employees. Read more in this article.

The questionnaire is about...

  • ...the work situation -> how good are the relevant framework conditions at work?
  • ...the behavior in everyday work -> how health-promoting or health critical is the handling of workloads in everyday life?
  • ...the health

The ARWT survey covers nine topics, each with several statements. The first is aspects of working conditions that are relevant to health in the context of waiving the recording of working time (e.g., autonomy, support from managers, work quantity and pressure to produce results, extended accessibility and job insecurity). A health-promoting path is drawn on the left: Health-promoting work conditions can facilitate positive behaviors (self-care) and are associated with high engagement and good health. A health-critical path is drawn on the right: In the case of numerous stressors in everyday work, health-critical behavior (self-harm, e.g., working despite illness), conflicts between work and private life, and early health warning symptoms, such as exhaustion, are more likely to occur.

These nine topics are mapped in the so-called impact model:
