The results indicate that the identified factors are identical with QWL mentioned by individual authors and institutions. The following factors were identified: absence of stress, interpersonal relationships in the workplace, support from the organization, evaluation of work, working environment.

Buchtele, Monika ; Kočí, Jana (advisor) ; Syřiště, Ivo (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the topic of well-being and well-being of university teachers. This topic is still not as common and popular in the Czech Republic as it is in the USA, for example. After distance learning in Czech schools, more and more people started talking and writing about the well-being of pupils and students, but teachers, especially university ones, are still forgotten. The aim of this thesis is to verify the functionality of evidence-based activities for university teachers that have a positive effect on their well-being. The theoretical part deals with health, well-being and factors influencing well-being. It also deals with the topic of quality of life.

The second and main part includes case studies of participants who eventually participated in the research. Six university teachers, mostly from the Faculty of...
Socio-economic status and its influence on the structure and level of personal well-being
Matyášová, Eva ; Kebza, Vladimír (advisor) ; Blatný, Marek (referee)
The presented diploma thesis summarizes development of well-being and socioeconomic status conceptions by analyzing accesible vocational literature. The theoretical part is mainly focused on well-being and socioeconomic status (SES) in context and on searching for satisfactory explanation of relationship of those two variables. The attention in empirical part is devoted to examination the dependancy relationship between well-being and SES. We use Satisfaction with life scale (Diener et al., 1985) and The Ryff's scales of psychological well-being (Ryff, 1989) for measuring well-being. Socioeconomic status is deduced from income, education and occupational prestige. The existence of the dependancy relationship between income and well-being measured by RPWB was proven in our research sample (includes 213 respondents). The statistically significant differences between well-being (SWLS) were measured within group of people with elementary and high school education; and further within group of people with the lowest and highest income. However the relationship is sophistically structured and variety of dependent conditions is used rather than simple positive correlation. Key words: well-being, socioeconomic status, life satisfaction, happiness, income, education, occupational prestige
Thriving (glourishingg) of supra-national corporation manager
Rohlíková, Petra ; Rymeš, Milan (advisor) ; Bedrnová, Eva (referee) ; Štětovská, Iva (referee)
A managerial role place great challenges on the individual from the perspective of self- management, primarily considering the challenges of that role and individual needs and values. This dissertation discusses the potential for maintaining well-being when performing in a managerial role in a supra-national corporation. The focus is primarily on the idea of flourishing (thriving) defined by the American psychologist Martin Seligman. Flourish fundamentally includes subjective, hedonic elements (experiences of joy), as well as, eudaemonic quality built on the individual but for the wider community. Flourishing is closely linked to the self-concept of the individual; its content is subjective in character. Employment in a supra-national environment includes characteristics which may reduce the quality of this for an individual. This, mainly, involves constant adapting to change, working in a turbulent environment, collaborations encountering cultural differences (national and organisational), working in a matrix structure and/or frequent emphases on hedonism or consumerism. The research is predominantly qualitative in character; mapping pivotal topics which, in the future, will require a more empirical approach. This research focuses on a deeper understanding of functional areas and strategies which...
