Measuring the strength of workplace

One Gallup study posed the question "What good managers do when  working with employees?" Underlying certain behaviors are data  pinched from over a million employee interviews conducted by Gallup  over a twenty-five year period. The determination of goodness was based on a balance of human, production, and service criteria against which the interview data were matched. Applying standard statistical techniques, they look for patterns and discriminating questions. 
 
The result of this study does not cover everything you might want to know about your workplace, but it does cover the most important  information. You will notice the issues of pay and benefits are not included.
 
Questions for measuring the strength of your workplace.
 
1.) Do I know what is expected of me at work?
 
2.) Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work correctly?
 
3.) At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
 
4.) In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for good work?
 
5.) Does my manager, or someone at work, seem to care about me as  a person?
 
6.) Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
 
7.) At work do my opinions count?
 
8.) Does the mission or purpose of my company make me feel like my work is important?
 
9.) Are my coworkers committed to doing quality work?
 
10.) Do I have a best friend at work?
 
11.) In the last 6 months, have I talked with someone about my progress?
 
12.) At work, have I had the opportunities to learn how to grow?
