The Social Encounters Scale (SES) enables organizations and researchers to profile the social dynamics of a workplace. Workplace social dynamics are important, as they have a significant bearing on employees’ worklife experience and on workplace productivity. Employers also face increased legal liability for physical and psychological harm experienced in dysfunctional workplace social environments.
The SES can identify workplace social behaviors for study and to help the administrator build and maintain a healthy social environment in their workplace. The SES identifies the source and frequency of civility, incivility, and intimidation in the workplace. These behaviors may be received from Supervisors or Coworkers, or the behaviors may be Instigated by the survey respondent.
The SES comprises 23 items and is available for administration online or via paper/pen assessment. Purchase the license to use the SES as part of an organizational survey e.g., with the MBI + AWS, or as a discrete assessment.
