If you decide to take part in the Workplace Wellbeing Index, there are five areas that will be assessed through an employer assessment and a staff survey:
Culture and engagement
Knowledge, awareness, and skills
This key area focuses on organisations’ general wellbeing culture and agenda, alongside staff perceptions of positive change, work/life balance and what proportion are motivated by their workplace culture.
We assess the physical environment and the initiatives employers are implementing to improve wellbeing. We also look at what staff think about these initiatives and whether they feel connected, active and have time to reflect.
This section covers mental health awareness, training and information provided by employers, alongside employees’ views on how they develop knowledge and skills at work.
This includes feedback opportunities, guidance and appraisal processes provided by employers and staff views of their duties and responsibilities.
This key area covers the support provided by employers, what employees think of them and how they’re used.
Mind gave us the opportunity to work with a credible and reputable organisation and really look at our health and wellbeing offer to make sure that we were going in the right direction.I’d absolutely recommend getting involved with the Index and working in partnership with Mind; it’s given us that objective viewpoint, it’s made sure that even the pandemic hasn’t derailed our health and wellbeing strategy and having that real scrutiny and that honest feedback is going to help us go from strength to strength.
