Why asking questions is the answer
Anxiety disorder is the most common mental health problem. It is even more common than depression. Symptoms of an anxiety disorder include worrying about the future, having difficulties concentrating, an inability to relax, and experiencing an abnormally high heart rate.
According to the World Economic Forum, more than 270 million people around the world suffer from this kind of disorder. It’s not only a health question but also about economics: experts estimate that by 2030, mental health problems will cost the global economy 16 trillion dollars.
Stress, everyday challenges, and a poor work-life balance can take a toll on anybody’s mental wellbeing. Even though mental health issues are common, few people would openly admit suffering from them. The solution is addressing the problem. Sending out an employee health and wellbeing survey is a great way to both reduce the stigma around mental health issues and take a first step towards helping your employees.
Employee health and wellbeing survey is an important part of Remente’s wellness programs. The employee wellbeing survey lets you know which departments might be suffering/being neglected and need some extra support and enables you to take action to increase both health and productivity.
What is an employee wellbeing survey?
An employee health and wellbeing survey is a questionnaire to establish the happiness, health, and productivity of the employees. A survey allows employees to speak their minds and give the employer feedback on the current state inside the company.
How to frame wellness survey questions
Asking the right questions is an art. To get the most out of the survey the questions should be open-ended (a question that can’t be answered with just yes or no), correctly spelled, and leave no room for ambiguity. Avoid asking leading or vague questions. An employee wellbeing survey can also contain a survey scale where different survey response options are orderly arranged.
An effective survey should focus on these areas:
- The personal wellbeing
- The engagement
- The individual productivity
- The company
- The company culture
- The managers
Important wellness survey questions to ask
- How are you feeling? (wellbeing)
- How is the workload? (wellness/productivity)
- How engaged are you in your work? (engagement)
- What motivates you? (productivity)
- How can we help you reach your greatest potential? (productivity)
- How can we improve as a company? (company)
- How would you describe the culture of the company? (company culture)
- How would you describe your work relationship with the manager? (manager)
Asking these questions to employees face to face might be a bit intimidating for the employee, not to say inefficient if you’re a larger company. There’s always a risk that you won’t get honest answers. However, without asking, you won’t know the state of mind of your employees and what you need to change to improve their wellbeing, and as a result: their productivity.
The wellbeing programs offered by Remente include regularly sending out employee health and wellbeing surveys as health check-ins. Anonymous of course. Together with Remente, you as an employer can filter the results från the employee wellbeing survey based on country, departments, sub-departments, or other parameters. In regard to the integrity of the employees, we never share data of groups with less than five persons.
The data from the employee health and wellbeing survey will hand your company feedback along with other great features that will improve psychosocial wellbeing in the workplace and enable you to make well- grounded decisions regarding the future of your company.
Positive side effects from a wellness survey
Sending out an employee wellness questionnaire is likely to have a positive ripple effect. An employee wellness questionnaire can:
- Help reduce the stigma of having mental health issues.
- Encourage talking about mental wellness among colleagues.
- Make employees reflect over their feelings, see patterns in their behavior, and seek professional help if necessary.
Taking action on the results
The employee survey has given you great insight into both the wellness and productivity of your employees. Now what? Sending out a wellness questionnaire will show your employees they matter but it’s first when you take action upon the result you prove that you actually care about their wellbeing.
