Questionnaire on the Experience and Evaluation of Work (QEEW)

Since 1994 SKB has been facilitating research related to employee vitality, health, and job satisfaction. Questionnaires form the basis of our research. One of them is the Questionnaire on the Experience and Evaluation of Work (QEEW, Dutch abbreviation: VBBA). SKB holds the copyright of the QEEW and has the exclusive right to administer, exploit, edit, and license the questionnaire.

After twenty years of intensive usage, the QEEW has grown into a unique set of brief survey scales. A versatile set of scales that is easily applicable in many practical settings, but which has also proven useful in scientific studies on the functioning of human capital in organizations.

As a leading knowledge institute, we believe in sharing knowledge. That is why we offer students and scientific researchers the opportunity to make use of the QEEW.

Are there any costs involved?

As a student or researcher, you can use the QEEW free of charge for research groups of at least 25 to 150 invited persons. We do ask you to pay 50 EURO deposit (and 15 EURO administration fee outside the EU). The deposit will be refunded when we receive your thesis / research report.
If your research group consists of more than 150 employees you have to pay a license fee. Please fill in the application form and we will send you more information and instructions.
