EYP How does your organization measure health and human performance? The answer might vary depending on who you ask.
If you direct this question to someone within facilities or real estate, they will point to how their buildings are LEED certified. Several credits for LEED include strategies that improve indoor air quality and access to natural light and views. These certifications identify specific ways the built environment can better support health through building location, outdoor spaces, staircases, the design of the indoor environment, and food provisioning.
Then there are the metrics that human resources cares about when it comes to organizational health, like the engagement and happiness of employees that are addressed in surveys from the Society for Human Resources Management. Sometimes it can sometimes be difficult to prioritize which metric is most important to focus on across the organization.
Interestingly, there are many new tools and methods that are beginning to look more comprehensively to evaluate organizational well-being. This tool combines elements of engagement, health, performance, culture, and the physical work environment.
It is being championed by Dr. Specifically, the tool evaluates: Provides both affective and evaluative aspects of well-being. Subjective well-being has been associated with overall health and performance.
Measures the number of employee healthy days and a subjective report of work performance. Captures feelings at work vigor, dedication, absorption that have been previously associated with job resources, health, and work performance.
Captures the availability of work resources i. Captures the quality of space and access to healthy amenities adjustable desks, fitness centers, shower facilities, healthy food options.
The intent of this tool is to provide the business community with a universal benchmark, transferable across industrial sectors and global businesses, for communicating how the business impacts employee development and well-being.
Here are five high-level findings, and the actions we are taking as a result: Exercise is connected to office location. Our employee data shows a correlation between the amount of exercise employees are getting and office location.
Employees assigned to an office with a shorter commute, in an urban location, with access to public transportation and parks, and views to the outdoors were more likely to exercise.
Lack of sleep is connected to commute and workload. Lack of sleep was attributed to heavy workloads, increased stress, and longer commute time.
The demographic of employees who sleep the least and reported being the most stressed are women, particularly those under This falls in line with nationally reported data.
Stress impacts performance more than physical health issues. Overall, employees claimed mental health issues stress, anxiety, or both were more impactful to presenteeism and absenteeism than physical health issues.
This number went up for women and younger staff. There are many reasons employees might feel anxious: Culture greatly impacts performance at work. When Harvard tested questions about culture, the work environment, amenities provided, and workplace flexibility and then compared them to job performance and life satisfaction, their analysis confirmed what we suspected: Culture has a stronger impact on our health outcomes than the other factors by a long shot.
Organizational factors like trust, respect, fairness, vibrant atmosphere, and authenticity were correlated with job productivity and life satisfaction more than anything else. Though not as highly rated as culture, there are some physical workplace elements that more strongly correlate with job and life satisfaction than others.
Taking action EYP is sharing these results with each of our offices and engaging in a conversation about our culture, operations, and the physical environment in our offices.
We also see this research as important to helping us shape our thinking when it comes to workplace strategy and how we support our clients.
