Analytics to Improve Well-Being

Cut down on skyrocketing healthcare costs and develop employees who perform at their best every day.

Most wellness programs miss the mark.
Many companies try to achieve higher employee well-being -- and therefore better business outcomes -- through programs that are focused on physical wellness, but these initiatives rarely create impact for the individual or the business.


Physical wellness is just one of five crucial elements of well-being.

Gallup and Healthways have developed a proven source of well-being measurement: the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being 5. Research shows that employees thriving in the five areas of well-being -- purpose, social, financial, community and physical -- miss 41% less work as a result of poor health and are more engaged in their jobs, improving business performance.

Physical wellness alone does not provide these benefits.

Gallup helps companies broaden their programs to create cultures of well-being that enrich both employees' lives and business performance.

Only 12% of participants in a company wellness program strongly agree they have higher overall well-being because of their employer's program.

Well-being analytics to improve business performance.

A few one-off events, such as a stress management presentation and a smoking cessation workshop, are not enough to constitute a successful well-being program.

Isolated interventions rarely gain traction.

We offer a well-communicated, companywide wellness strategy based on extensive scientific research, starting with The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being 5.

We measure well-being to give leaders a unique perspective on their population's wellness level and the improved levels they realistically are able to achieve -- information that is vital to inform well-being improvement strategies.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being 5 is a scientific survey that measures, tracks and reports extensively on the well-being of individuals and organizations.

The five essential elements of well-being are:

  • purpose: liking what you do each day and being motivated to achieve your goals
  • social: having supportive relationships and love in your life
  • financial: managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security
  • community: liking where you live, feeling safe and having pride in your community
  • physical: having good health and enough energy to get things done daily
