Healthy habits in software engineering
This survey elicits experiences, thoughts and opinions of software engineers on health & wellness practices.
While Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, does not require or have IRB for surveys like this, I, Birgit Penzenstadler, Assistant Professor at Chalmers, assure the survey was developed along the guidelines I have used at my previous US institution for similar surveys and therefore adopts best practices of IRB.
This means, should you choose to answer the survey and thereby participate in the research, you are free to withdraw from the research at any point without reason (by closing the browser window), you can skip questions you don't want to answer, and you can even contact me later to see I shall not use your datapoint (only possible if you choose to leave your email address, otherwise I won't know which answers to delete).
Your data will be anonymous, or will be anonymised if you choose to leave your email address - I am offering to leave your email if you want to be notified about results, but I am the only one to see the raw data and will put identifiers on it. I care about your trust, therefore I will do everything to protect your privacy.
I appreciate the valuable minutes of your time you take to answer this 5-item survey.
Please contact me at birgitp @ chalmers dot se if you have any questions or concerns.
What is your habit, routine, or practice to ensure your overall health & wellness and/or to counteract stress or a high workload? Could you describe a bit more what you do for it? How long have you been doing it? How often do you do it? Consider physical, mental, and emotional health.
How did you learn this, e.g. did you attend a training, read a book, try with a friend, or develop it yourself? What were the hurdles when you first started?
What are your perceived benefits from that habit or practice in your work? And in your private life?
Would you consider it relevant to offer trainings for such habits or practices at work? Why, or why not? And if yes, are there any specific types you would want? For example, a training course, or a regular continued practice group?
Statistics please :) Country, age, occupation?
