Good Job Barometer

Good Job Barometer

Use the SAK Good Job Barometer to test your working conditions and compare them with the experiences of more than 1,200 other employees.

The 19 questions in this Good Job Barometer cover two general areas: employment essentials and ordinary life at work. The Barometer will use your responses to assess whether your working conditions are better or worse than average.
