Wellbeing in Sorint Survey

Our team at SorintWellness recently rolled out a survey tool. We sent you the survey via email this past week (Survey Wellbeing in Sorint- Invitation from People Development Sircle). We understand you may be tired of completing surveys (survey fatigue is a real phenomenon!), but we really do value the information you share. Why?

Because surveying our employees is crucial for building a wellness culture in the workplace. Not only does it allow us to assess needs, identify barriers, and shift culture, but it will help us tailor programs and monitor progress. Let’s break down why we sent the Wellbeing in Sorint survey:

Assessing Needs: This survey will help us understand the specific health and wellness needs of our workforce. By collecting feedback directly from employees, we can aim to identify areas of concern or interest related to physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Identifying Barriers: Our survey will aim to identify barriers that may hinder employee engagement with wellness, such as lack of awareness, time constraints, or perceived stigma. This information allows us to address these obstacles and create a more supportive environment for employee well-being.

Tailoring Programs: Our survey will enable us to tailor wellness programs and initiatives to meet the unique needs and preferences of our workforce. This customization increases the relevance and effectiveness of wellness efforts, leading to higher engagement and participation rates.

Monitoring Progress: We hope tp regularly survey our employees in order to track the effectiveness of our wellbeing culture over time. By measuring changes in employee attitudes, behaviors, and health outcomes, we can assess progress, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions to optimize our wellbeing culture.

Cultural Shift: This survey can help contribute to building a culture of wellness by signaling that health and well-being are valued priorities within our organization. By introducing wellness-related terminology and concepts, we are also educating our workforce. Over time, we hope this cultural shift can lead to positive changes in attitudes, norms, and behaviors related to health and wellness among employees.

We want to demonstrate our commitment to wellbeing at Sorint with this survey. But we understand some of the information you came across in the survey might be new. So we’d like to share a few working definitions of phrases and terminology that may be confusing:

Workplace wellbeing- Workplace wellbeing refers to the overall health, happiness, and satisfaction of employees within an organization. It encompasses various dimensions of wellness, including physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. Workplace well-being initiatives aim to create a supportive and conducive environment that promotes the health and happiness of employees, leading to improved morale, productivity, and organizational performance.

Work-life balance- Work-life balance refers to the equilibrium or harmony between the demands of work and personal life. It involves effectively managing responsibilities, commitments, and activities related to employment, career, family, leisure, and personal development in a way that promotes well-being and satisfaction in both domains.

Emotional wellbeing- Emotional well-being refers to the state of being mentally and emotionally healthy, resilient, and able to cope with the ups and downs of life effectively. It encompasses various aspects of emotional health, including self-awareness, self-regulation, emotional resilience, and the ability to navigate and manage one's feelings, thoughts, and behaviors in a constructive manner.

Mental wellbeing- Mental well-being, also known as mental health or psychological well-being, refers to the state of being mentally healthy, resilient, and able to cope with the stresses of life effectively. It encompasses various aspects of mental health, including emotional stability, cognitive functioning, psychological resilience, and the ability to maintain positive relationships and adapt to change.

Physical wellbeing- Physical well-being refers to the state of being physically healthy, fit, and functioning optimally. It encompasses various aspects of physical health, including physiological fitness, nutrition, sleep, and overall vitality.

Stress- Stress is a natural physiological and psychological response to perceived threats, challenges, or demands, known as stressors. It is the body's way of mobilizing resources and energy to cope with perceived danger or pressure. While stress can be a normal and adaptive response to certain situations, chronic or excessive stress can have negative effects on physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

As soon as we've collected and analyzed data, we will share what we've learned with you. That's right, we want you to be a collaborative part of this process.
