Organisational Health & Wellbeing Survey
We ask your workforce some simple health & wellbeing questions.
This enables us to benchmark and track changes in health behaviour, health risks, attitudes, readiness to change and health perceptions over time.
This comprehensive Survey covers:
- Physical wellbeing – medical issues, waist, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, sleep, exercise, healthy eating, alcohol, musculoskeletal, smoking.
- Mental wellbeing – resilience, mood, stress, coping skills.
- Personal wellbeing – finance, relationships, caring, work life balance.
- Behaviour – goals and motivation.
Questions are based on both risk and behaviour and taken from our core validated question bank.
Optional: COVID-19 questions can be added e.g. positive life changes, main issues affecting wellbeing, workplace risk, homeworking, shielding.

Comments from customers
Michael Fox , Manager, HR Operations, ESB Dublin
“Wellbeing4business undertook a review of our internal Occupational Health function to independently assess our capability in this area and to make recommendations on areas to focus on to enhance the quality and value of this service. The team at Wellbeing4business were very professional and efficient in their approach and dealt with our team in a very courteous and respectful manner. The recommendations for enhancement to our Occupational Health activity were very comprehensive and insightful. These recommendations coupled with their general views on how we might grow our overall health and wellbeing services were very valuable to our company.”
Gavin Wright, Human Resources at Hampshire County Council
“We engaged Wellbeing4business to undertake a fundamental review of our Occupational Health and Staff Counselling Services. He undertook this work in a highly professional and competent manner and quickly gained a strong level of confidence from those he worked with. The outcome of the review and subsequent actions have made a considerable and positive impact on the services and I have no hesitation in recommending Mark as a very experienced, competent and skilled consultant in his field.”
