Towards a better future of work for every individual

How is work related to people’s subjective perspective of wellbeing?
We are conducting research and studies over the world to understand the relationship between work and people’s wellbeing.
Based on the results, we will design the future of work contributes to people’s wellbeing.
Since 2020, we have worked with the Well-being for Planet Earth Foundation and Gallup, Inc. to launch workplace wellbeing survey in 116 countries and regions through Gallup World Poll *.
The results of the survey will be shared every year and the detailed data will be made available on this site.
