Survey of Work Styles (SWS)

Product Description

Best For:

  • Counsellors and practitioners who need a Type A Behaviour Pattern test to measure patterns in employees and/or clients
  • Researchers and practitioners who would like a better understanding of how Type A behaviour pattern affects work attitudes, turnover, absenteeism, and work-related stress
  • Research on the behavioral correlates of health risk factors

What is the SWS?

The Survey of Work Styles (SWS) is a type A behaviour pattern test. It is a self-report questionnaire with 96 items designed to assess six distinct components of the Type A Behaviour Pattern (TABP). The SWS is economical, convenient, objective, and has sound psychometric properties when compared with other measures.

Why Should I Use the SWS?

CONVENIENT. The SWS can be administered in 15 minutes on SIGMA’s online platform – SigmaTesting.com. Reports are generated immediately. Results are presented using graphs, numbers, scale descriptions, and development advice that is insightful and easy to understand.

COMPREHENSIVE REPORT. The SWS Developmental Report provides detailed advice for scores on each TABP scale. This information is valuable for coaching, development, research on work-related stress, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles in business and industrial settings.

RELIABLE AND VALID. The SWS is a reliable and valid measure of Type A Behaviour. The SWS shows meaningful relationships with managerial performance. Test norms are based on responses from 223 men and 133 women in the United States.

CONTEMPORARY CONCEPTUALIZATION OF TABP. TABP is most often measured with interviews, which are time-consuming and susceptible to bias. Other measures of TABP fail to appreciate the multidimensionality of Type A behaviour pattern. The SWS offers an improvement over other traditional measures of TABP. In its development and construction, attention was paid to minimize response bias. The SWS was designed to measure individual differences in the patterns of Type A behaviour. Separate patterns have different implications for work performance and quality of interpersonal relations and is highly correlated with the Rosenman Type A Structured Interview.
