By implementing a successful wellbeing strategy which addresses the needs of the workforce across each of the six pillars, this can have significant benefits to the employer, some of which include:
BWell is our innovative wellbeing analytics tool which aims to assess overall employee wellbeing and happiness within the workplace. We offer an in-depth analysis of the workforce, which incorporates an employee wellbeing survey and various data such as absence and premium. This is then provided to you in a snapshot style report and we will consult based on the trends and hotspots highlighted within the analysis in order to assist you to implement a bespoke yet holistic wellbeing strategy to address the needs identified. This process aims to ultimately improve the overall wellbeing of your employees but also increase the performance of the employer and for the first time create a tangible return on investment.
It is important to firstly understand your current health and wellbeing risks; this is where our employee survey and modelling tool come in.
Our survey is designed to understand your employees’ perception of their own wellbeing measured in terms of each of the six pillars and our modelling tool is designed to look at specific company demographics and existing data such as absence and claims from medical insurance and income protection in order to establish existing trends. This is presented to you in a snapshot style report.
Once we understand your corporate health and wellbeing risks we can consult to help you build a wellbeing strategy that targets those risks from a prevention and intervention perspective.
The strategy can be delivered via any market platform, or our very own engagement platform, Me2, specialist third party providers or in-house.
Regular governance is fundamental to ensuring that the strategy remains relevant. Further surveys and modelling on an annual basis ensure the strategy remains fit for purpose while also evidencing the return on investment the employer has achieved to date.
Employee Assistance Programmes are one of the most effective tools available to support employees. However, they are under-promoted, under-utilised and therefore undervalued by those employees they are there to help.
