Wellness Profiling provides detailed evaluation of the wellness of the people in your organisation. We aren't just talking about a bunch of blood tests, blood pressure and sugar level. That's Sickness Profiling and treating symptoms. We're talking about real health and wellness. In total, Nine (9) aspects of being a "Well-being" which includes physical health and psychological well-being, satisfaction with lifestyle and attitudes and behaviours relating to personal wellness. Within these nine dimensions of Wellness, there are 44 sub-scales.
Finding strengths, and creating more, as well as finding low scores and building them up is what will make us healthier, mentally, physically, socially and better at life. If we succeed in life, we're going to succeed at work.
We spend 1/3 of our lives in bed - so we should buy a great mattress and pillow. We spend most of our life at work, with our colleagues and superiors. So we should make sure that life in the workplace is great. But the stats don't look great at all... What went wrong?
Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council of Singapore reports that ergonomic health issues cost Singapore
S$3.5 Billion a year.
A study in Australia found that back pain costs A$8.15 billion in lost earnings and productivity.
Australian Industry Group estimates that each absent employee costs $578 per day in lost productivity.
A study in the US found that the total economic burden of major depression is now estimated to be $210.5 billion per year.
Absenteeism accounts for 13% of the mental health burden in the United States.
13% is US$78 billion per year.
Presenteeism in the US is even more costly. People at their desk yet unproductive, costs companies US$78 billion per year.
If you could improve all aspects of health (Stress, physical health, mental wellbeing, satisfaction with lifestyle, attitudes towards health, managing health & work issues, wellness behaviours, pace of life and coping with pressure) then you will be powerful beyond all measure.
Brand Ambassadors (like the Top Sales guy, or the best customer service award winner) are people in the company who succeed above and beyond others. Many companies on have 10% in that top tier, with twice that amount at the other end of the scale - the discontented, unhappy and unengaged group. So how can we move these people up to average or highly engaged and motivated employees?
Don't impose your wellness plan. It might look good on paper and tick all the right boxes but thats about it. Do your people have energy all day long, pride & confidence, great relationships able to handle life’s Ups and Downs, perform well under pressure and find it easier to relax and ‘switch off’? Do they feel in control?
Can they create more “me” time and have behaviours that reduce health risks, improve their sex drive and help them age better?
These are things people want and care about - but we'll only know if we ASK them.
Attitudes, beliefs and behaviours will make a person. Success, growth and happiness come from positive attitudes and supportive behaviours. At the same time, there are thousands of attitudes and behaviours for all aspects of health. If you can identify four areas that require growth, as well as four areas that are flourishing, you can then focus on helping them transform. From there, it's so much easier to run programs, events, workshops and other team activities that make it convenient for peopel to grow, obtain greater understanding and learn new skills.
Analysis can come from assessing individual progress, progress as a team (which then leads to changes in culture) and progress as an entire organisation. You'll know which people thrive in which teams, which person to employ, promote and find that retention of talent is easy.
