The development of instruments to monitor psychosocial working conditions is a priority for any national research agenda (Dollard et al., 2007). In the Republic of Ireland, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is currently working with the University of Ulster to develop a new survey instrument, the Workplace Wellbeing Profile (WWP). The WWP will provide Irish organizations with an effective management tool to monitor psychosocial working conditions and psychological well-being in the workplace. The WWP will also be used to investigate psychosocial working conditions and employee psychological well-being levels throughout Ireland. The data collected from organizations will be analyzed to construct survey norms for benchmarking purposes. Descriptive statistics will also be produced to provide a much-needed overview of psychosocial working conditions and employee psychological well-being in Ireland. The WWP is currently being piloted nationwide (Feb – July 2011), and preliminary data will be available for presentation and discussion by September 2011.
