Workplace wellbeing surveys 

We believe that for a workplace wellbeing survey should meet both individual and organisational needs. Our approach was to create a flexible tool that follows our behavioural health model and allows an organisation to assess a wide range of work, health and personal issues.

We also believe that service integration, value and engagement feedback is essential for future strategy development

The wellbeing surveys are not a single intervention but are a tool that allows clients to increase utilisation of existing services and identify future needs. Our bespoke profiles are built to fit each organisation. We have a large question bank to draw from and will work with you to design and operate a comprehensive employee wellbeing profile.

Wellbeing Surveys

A wellbeing survey is a valuable tool when designing an organisational strategy as they provide a snapshot of the wellbeing within a set population and detail, both health risk and health intentions. They also provide valuable feedback on current services.

Our profiles take a few minutes to complete, are confidential and can be deployed across the whole organisation or targeted groups. Upon completion a detailed organisational report is produced.

Put simply, a health risk appraisal can be part of an organisation-wide strategy that addresses health risk factors that are amenable to change. No organisation can change a person’s age or medical history, but it can advise people on factors such as diet and nutrition, smoking, drinking, fitness and exercise, and so on.

What is a wellbeing survey?

–Demographic characteristics – age, gender

The assessment takes 10 minutes to complete. Each participant receives a personal health lights report that highlights areas of strength and areas in need of improvement. The report rates each section, along with easy-to-understand next steps for health improvement.
