What does the survey measure?

The core survey measures how your workplace affects your employee's health and performance. For example, engagement and burnout.

You can add extra modules to the survey, too:

+ Financial wellbeing
+ Women’s and men’s health.

How are the survey questions chosen?

The questions, scoring, reporting and awards are chosen by an independent board. It's made up of experts and academics across a range of fields. This includes public health, behavioural psychology, mental health and workplace wellbeing. And it's chaired by expert medical practitioner, Professor Dame Carol Black.

How do we track your progress?

Based on survey answers from your employees, we'll give your organisation an accreditation status. This will be Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. We'll also give you a benchmark against similar employers in the same industry.

Your status is a simple way to understand your employee's health and wellbeing and is a good tool for tracking progress. You can get an updated status every year.

The accreditation scoring system also helps determine the winners of Britain's Healthiest Workplace.
