ACT Online Employee Health and Wellbeing Survey

To be effective, workplace health and wellbeing programs must be based on the needs and program interests of staff. The ACT Online Employee Health and Wellbeing Survey is intended for use by medium to large organisations with more than 30 employees.

The easy to use ACT Online Employee Health and Wellbeing Survey tool offers the following.

For workplaces:

  • a survey that you can distribute to staff electronically
  • an automatically generated de-identified aggregate report on the health status and program preferences of staff – the report does not provide information on individuals
  • information on health questions that relate to smoking, nutrition and hydration, physical activity, alcohol consumption and emotional wellbeing
  • immediate confidential feedback for your staff on their health and wellbeing, with ideas on how to address areas of risk
  • baseline data to help monitor and refine programs if repeated down the track

For staff:

  • a mini health check
  • a confidential and personalised tailored report on an individual’s current health status, with ideas on how to address areas of risk
