The sample should be drawn proportionally from all levels of the staff. It would be no good to sample a disproportionally large number of executives, for example - they might be happier with their jobs than the others (higher salaries, better benefits) or they might be less happy with their jobs than the others (stuck behind a desk all day, unhappy with corporate environment, etc). The same arguments against disproportional sampling could be applied to any of the other groups.

800 employees, want to sample 10%, so the sample size will be 80. You want a representative sample with the same proportion of workers as the whole population. Take 10% of each of the different positions: 10% of 100 = 10 executives 10% of 650 = 65 middle managers 10% of 50 = 5 custodial workers So pick 10 random executives, 65 random middle managers, and 5 random custodial workers. That way your sample is representative of the population.
