Program overview

Our organizational wellness assessment will calculate your company and team’s wellness to help you determine the effectiveness of your current workplace wellness solutions and support you as you further develop your wellness strategy.

The organizational wellness assessment score is derived from:

Employee wellness questionnaire

This survey can be completed online or in print form. To ensure employee privacy, Manitoba Blue Cross will only provide aggregate data, and a minimum of 10 employees must complete the organizational wellness assessment.

Our organizational wellness assessment and the questionnaire is focused on six dimensions of wellness:

  • Physical: Practicing behaviours that support physical health and safety.
  • Emotional: Managing emotions to cope with stress, enjoy life and maintain healthy relationships.
  • Occupational: Obtaining personal fulfillment from work or daily activities.
  • Financial: Feeling financially secure in a way that provides freedom of choice in the present and future.
  • Social: Building and maintaining supportive relationships and dealing effectively with conflict.
  • Intellectual: Engaging in mentally stimulating activities and expanding knowledge through cultural, artistic and skill-based learning.
Key performance indicators

This may include details from your company’s human resources department on talent attraction (e.g. offer acceptance rates, time to fill position), productivity (e.g. absenteeism, disability) and talent attraction (e.g. voluntary/involuntary turnover). This performance will be ranked against national, provincial and/or industry-specific standards.

Your employees are your most valuable asset. By focusing equally on the wellness of employees and on key performance indicators, we can help you to rank, compare, contrast and correlate individual variables to quantifiable business outcomes.

Let us help you maximize your wellness potential.
