2:35 pm – 3:35 pm
Well-being is a dynamic concept that includes subjective, social and psychological dimensions as well as health-related behaviors. While there are many models for defining well-being within different contexts, this session will consider well-being in a business context: its impact on work performance, business risk exposures and attainment of organizational goals. Presenters will provide examples of what to measure; evidence-based sources of measures; and how to encapsulate measures from various domains of physical, psychological and organization well-being into business-relevant performance indicators. Data from 3,414 employees at GlaxoSmithKline Belgium will be used to demonstrate the practical application of these measures at both the executive team and departmental levels. Attendees will find application includes use of data to engage trade unions, inform health and well-being programming, and drive cultural transformation efforts. Differences in the insights for blue collar, white collar and exempt employees will be highlighted, and organizational measures/targets will be presented.
