The benefits of employees' wellbeing screening and assessment

Updated: Aug 29, 2023


Are you able to accurately tell what percentage of your staff is struggling or what population group are at an increased risk of developing mental health problems in your organization?


If you answer "no" to both questions then that is a concern not just to your staff but also to your organization. The data on well-being in the workplace is clear. Healthy employees perform better and many of the internal difficulties faced by organizations are directly related to poor employees wellbeing. This is not surprising because employees' well-being is directly linked to absenteeism, engagement, productivity, turnover and more.





Unfortunately, as a society our default mode of approaching mental health and wellbeing is reactive. We tend to prioritize and attend to the matter only when it's too late. This often leads to higher sickness or productivity costs as more money, time, and resources are directed towards repairing the damage that could have been prevented. Our employee well-being screening looks for the most common mental and physical symptoms of extreme psychological distress across the population. We identify what percentage or group of your working population is at risk of developing severe mental health difficulties and then work closely with you to provide effective science-based solutions.


Below are just a few of the benefits of adopting a proactive strategy towards employee well-being:


  • Employee loyalty

Employees leave to protect their mental health. Retain your best employees by prioritizing their well-being. This also increases your brand image, trust and overall organizational commitment.


  • Productivity

To do good work, employees must feel good. This will look different for each employee. As an organization, it is critical to understand what employees need to function optimally. This begins with understanding what is currently preventing them from functioning optimally.


  • Engagement

Those who are unwell are less likely to be open to work or social engagement. Improving the quality of work and relationships in the workplace requires an environment where people believe they can flourish. Environmental awareness of potential stressors contributing to poor well-being is crucial and must be met with effective solutions.
