The key advantage to conducting the survey is to create an understanding of wellbeing based on direct responses from your University staff.
Areas affecting them for example: financial wellbeing, mental health, nutrition, workplace stressors, engagement etc. and also to see whether the interventions currently in place are reaching out to staff effectively.
The survey runs till the end of July. It is completely free and voluntary. It is commissioned by Vitality but not part of their medical insurance package – you do not get involved in any marketing or approaches. RAND Europe administers the survey – who are a not for profit research institute.
If you are interested but not sure if you can fit into this window period they will be running a further survey period later in the year. However running it later in the year may mean you are not be eligible for the Awards.
Also here is a copy of an anonymous organisational report to show this more clearly.
Staff also receive their own individual report instantly clearly showing areas of their health and lifestyles that they may wish to consider more.
In this sense the Vitality Age they receive becomes a health intervention in itself, often prompting staff to discuss with their colleagues informally and to take individual or collective action.
