Our Wellbeing Measurement, Management and Reporting System improves individual, team and organisational wellbeing, by matching wellbeing solutions to employee wellbeing challenges.
The employee wellbeing market is rapidly expanding with pre- and post-pandemic employee wellbeing issues expected to cost the UK economy £2.3 billion per day. Widespread loss of focus, absenteeism, presenteeism and other value destroying behaviours are impacting, if not crippling, many employees and organisations. Consequently, the demand for effective wellbeing solutions, wellbeing management systems and methods of measuring both wellbeing and the return on wellbeing has never been greater, with the UK market passing £60 billion in 2021.
We know wellbeing is idiosyncratic i.e., an employee’s wellbeing needs are specific to them and consequently wellbeing support needs to be coordinated, provisioned, and measured at the employee level. Challenges in identifying individual wellbeing needs and baselining wellbeing have seen organisations adopting untargeted and often unmeasured blanket approaches that convey an overall positive perception that wellbeing is important but offer little measurable effect. As the wellbeing market evolves, more effective targeted solutions will become essential, however these will only work if there are capable methods of measuring, managing, and reporting employee wellbeing and wellbeing success, which until recently have relied on proxy measures such as attrition or attendance rates, which we know to be contradictory and misleading.
The KAYA portfolio of solutions has been developed to address the measurement, management and reporting gap in the wellbeing market. It is an employee wellbeing HealthTech solution that allows organisations and their managers to identify and respond to the wellbeing needs of individual employees by scientifically measuring their wellbeing levels. The KAYA Wellbeing IndexTM, created as part of the founder’s PhD and post-doctoral research, measures wellbeing and identifies idiosyncratic employee wellbeing issues through a short online questionnaire and using a proprietary behavioural algorithm creates a trackable wellbeing score that when aggregated with other employee scores can be benchmarked against other team and/or company scores. The results are stored in the KAYA Wellbeing Management System which allows organisations and their employees to record individual wellbeing challenges, ensure challenges are managed and when resolved demonstrate quantitively that employee wellbeing has improved. Wellbeing levels can be tracked periodically through the KAYA Pulse Survey which provides the data for the Wellbeing Indexing and wellbeing improvements correlated with initiatives, providing a demonstrable and reportable return on wellbeing for wellbeing managers and wellbeing service providers.
