Description Gathering information to assess the situation with regard to stress in the different countries
Target group small and medium size companies both in Hungary, in Bulgaria and in Slovakia
The international sample of 176 individuals was chosen in order to represent the particular area and client network of the partners on the greatest scale, thus this pre-concept in the selection method determines our outcomes as well. The questionnaires were analyzed by 17.0 version of SPSS program.
Among the sectors of the companies, it was possible for the respondents to mark more than one sector in the questionnaire. Thus companies in our sample belong to four bigger sectors: education (42 companies), services (42 companies), agriculture (26 companies) and commerce (21 companies)
A majority, around 65% of the companies in our sample are present on the market for more than 10 years. The sizes of the companies on the other hand vary on a large scale.
The individuals who filled in our questionnaires were mostly employed as lower managers, Only 48 people filled in the questionnaire for managers, 128 people filled in the one for employees.
Regarding the qualifications, almost 2/3 of our sample has at least one university degree, and around 1/3 has secondary school qualification. Only a very small number of the respondents claimed to have a primary school level of qualification.
The distribution of the personal data regarding the sex, age and time spent at the company is even in our sample, there are no outstanding groups represented.
Area of application The SPA project training material – which serves as the basis for adaptation – can only be adapted if we make a survey to assess the situation of the target groups in the participating countries as well as their expectations with regard to the possibilities offered to them. It was for this reason that – building upon the questionnaires that had been used in the course of the assessments within the SPA project – but at the same time updating and making them more actual – new questionnaires have been elaborated for the managers as well as for the employees of the SMEs. It was our objective to have at least 50 completed questionnaires available in each partner country respectively. Through the analysis and evaluation of these questionnaires the relevant information has been gathered, on the basis of which the specific background of the training material in that particular country could be developed.
