By benchmarking against industry or best practice companies, we help you evaluate the impact of wellbeing programmes on business outcomes and performance.

We believe the ideal state of employee wellbeing is achieved when employees are physically thriving, emotionally balanced, financially secure and socially connected. These are the four key dimensions of our wellbeing approach. Our Wellbeing Diagnostic scorecard places the employee at the center and is truly integrated across all four dimensions.

How does the Wellbeing Diagnostic work?

The Wellbeing Diagnostic combines high-level wellbeing data points across the 4 pillars with a current state benchmark of best practice programs and policies offered. By combining the current state benchmark against an integrated wellbeing score of metrics we can quickly draw high level insights to identify areas of focus for a wellbeing strategy and program. For example, do we have a program offering gap or do we seemingly offer the right programs but are not seeing the expected outcomes and therefore need to evaluate the delivery of such programs whether that is through leadership involvement, physical environment, communications, general awareness, etc.? This combines our best-in-class research and specific client data to draw insights and inform a focused strategy.

The Current State Benchmark uses a range of statistical analyses and expert review based on 40 best practices the yields a weighted score across five major categories:

  • Physical wellbeing
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Financial wellbeing
  • Social wellbeing
  • Integrated implementation

Your Current State benchmark represents the percentile – where your company is positioned – compared to the wellbeing practices of industry peers and best-practice companies. This score helps you identify strengths and weaknesses, including any gaps in programs, as well as design or delivery issues, in your wellbeing initiatives.

The employee wellbeing diagnostic survey can support to measure the state of employee wellbeing. Employees answer a short survey, and the results are aggregated automatically into an online dashboard. Employers can view a deep dive into the scores for each question broken down by for example gender, age, tenure, department, or different locations.
