The study measures the degree of employees’ emotional attachment to their workplace and their level of engagement and motivation at work.

For the most recent study, a total of 1,500 randomly selected employees aged 18 and over in Germany were interviewed in German by telephone between November 20 and December 22, 2023 (dual frame: landline and mobile phone sample; random selection of telephone numbers, random selection of the target person in the household using the birthday method for more than one relevant target person per household). The results are representative of the workforce in Germany aged 18 and over.
