The Benefits of Frequent Wellbeing Assessments:

 For Individuals, Coaching, Organisations, and Schools.

Aaron Jarden

Recording available to Supporting Members

This chat outlines the history, development, current progress and some initial findings and insights from both Work on Wellbeing and Assessing Wellbeing in Education. These online assessment tools were specifically built to assess individual, workplace and school wellbeing, and in particular wellbeing change overtime. 

In addition, Work on Wellbeing can be used in a consulting sense to track individual clients. WoW is comprised of 50 questions, and measures: Global Wellbeing (e.g., life satisfaction, happiness, flourishing, etc); Domain Wellbeing (e.g., intimate relationship, family, finances, etc); Health and Resilience (e.g., resilience, subjective health, physical activity, etc); and Work Wellbeing (e.g., job satisfaction, autonomy, strengths use, etc).

AWE is identical with the addition of two additional questions on enabling school wellbeing, and the AWE assessment is also only 29 questions for students aged between 12-18 years (also with some slightly different questions). 

On completion real-time, individualized, comprehensive wellbeing reports are produced for all users, and users, organisations and schools receive organisational wellbeing reports – transparently holding organisations accountable for wellbeing and wellbeing change.

This presentation explains both products in detail and outlines what the WOW and AWE teams have accomplished, the technological, ethical, and online challenges they faced, and provides gleans of insight into their large dataset to date - including how such accurate real-time information can assist in improving organisational wellbeing. This presentation will also focus on functionality that is reported as most useful by organisational users, and qualitative analysis of two of the 50 questions. Implications for enhancing large scale organisational research design, and wellbeing programme implementation in organisations to improve wellbeing, are also discussed.

At the conclusion of this chat/talk participants will be offered backend access to both AWE and WoW to investigate the functionality on offer first hand, and also a one year 99% discount code so they can trial WoW with their relevant groups.
