Measuring Health, Engagement, Productivity, Culture and the Built Environment

Measuring Health, Engagement, Productivity, Culture and the Built Environment

November 2016

Our workforce suffers from obesity, musculoskeletal disorders, chronic stress, sleep deprivation and a lack of engagement. As a result, health care costs are escalating, the economy is suffering, and companies are losing their competitive advantage. Also, the tools we are using to measure our success are too narrow in focus or miss telling the whole story. The Harvard School of Public Health is helping corporations across all sectors with their Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise (SHINE), which measures and accelerates ways for the world to become healthier and more sustainable. One of their tools, the Health and Human Performance Index (HaPI), measures the impact of employment on employee well-being. The index provides a measure of risk, opportunity, progress and priority-setting for the growth of human capital in order to maximize organizational learning, engagement, and performance. The measure has several components, including well-being, productivity, engagement, work culture and physical environment. This presentation will include an overview of the SHINE program, a description of the new metrics that are relevant to measuring performance and todays built environment, the HaPI tool, and results from organizations who have taken the HaPI survey and their learnings.
