The workplace has been identified by the National Preventative Health Taskforce as a key environment to instigate better health behaviours.
With the ever growing burden of chronic disease, stress and poor health, combined with an ageing workforce, employers face a significant impact on worker’s retention, workplace absenteeism and productivity.
Up until now, employers have had to contend with the provision of fragmented health and well being initiatives without being able to evaluate their true worth.
Healthways Australia offers workplaces a fully integrated health and productivity solution. One that bench marks health and productivity, implements appropriate interventions and trades their results.
Well Being Assessment
Many companies use health risk assessments (HRAs) to understand and improve workforce health and guide programs. Research increasingly reveals vital linkages between healthcare costs, productivity, physical health, emotional health, health behaviour, work environment and social support.
The Healthways Well-Being Assessment (WBA™) offers organisations specific insight on these interconnected factors.
Results magnify opportunities to maximise the outcomes of program initiatives and measure their impact and effectiveness.
The WBA addresses more than an HRA, including productivity and six scientifically defined areas of well being.
- Life Evolution, or overall outlook
- Emotional Health
- Work environment and quality
- Physical Health
- Healthy Behaviours
- Basic access to health
The WBA can also incorporate biometric screening results to further define physical health and modifiable risks.
Based on your organisation’s aggregate results, we can provide specific recommendations to improve your workforce’s health an d productivity. Tailored feedback is provided to the individual to improve health, that reflects their responses and risks.
