A research team from Université Laval and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), is participating in an international research project to test the transcultural validity of a scale on decent work. The general objective of this project is to understand how culture, political and economic systems contribute to the construction of people’s perceptions of decent work. This research project takes place in a context where significant transformations have occurred in the labour market over the past 30 years. It seems that these transformations had have an impact on the working conditions and the working life of numerous workers.

The research team is now beginning to recruit participants and needs your support. Your participation in this research project would be extremely useful to help provide valuable and unprecedented data on people’s perceptions of decent work. The resulting data will be compared to workers from other countries.

We invite you to participate in this research and we hope that many of you will complete the questionnaire. Your participation will be completely confidential.

To participate in this research project, you must be a minimum of 18 years old, have a job and have a good command of English.

If you accept the present invitation, your contribution essentially consists of filling out an online questionnaire that has two main sections. The first relates to the perception you have of your current work, your satisfaction with it, and the meaning it has for you. The second shorter section deals more with your satisfaction and well-being in life.

To access the questionnaire, use the following link:
