“My Work Day” – An innovative study on stress in the workplace

Smartphone-based diary study with time and event sampling

Client: Prof. Dr. Laurenz Meier, University of Neuchâtel

Many studies on the workplace only survey participating employees once (cross-sectional studies). The findings that can be obtained from such studies are limited for many reasons.

The diary study “My Work Day” seeks to gain a much more detailed glimpse into a day in the workplace. As part of this study, participants complete “diaries” over a period of two weeks. This involves them answering several brief surveys on their smartphones during their work days. The participants receive the short surveys at certain times (time-based) or they themselves initiate an entry after having experienced a certain situation at work (event-based). The data obtained in this way provide insights into psychological processes at work; such insights could not previously be gained using conventional questionnaires.
