The Healthy Place Survey

Employees take part in the Healthy Place Survey, self-reporting on the extent to which the organisation is considered to be a healthy workplace. The survey element of the assessment measures the extent to which organisational practices, policies and behaviours are best fit for that organisation. 

By gathering quantitative and qualitative data on the employees’ perception of their experience of work, the survey provides essential information that enables the organisation to understand how to improve the workplace environment.

The questions in the Healthy Place Survey are organised under the four pillars of the Healthy Place to Work® Model.

The Healthy Development Plan

The Healthy Development Plan analyses the policies, programs and day-to-day management behaviours that underpin a healthy workplace culture. It benefits organisational leaders, managers at all levels and human resource departments. 

Healthy Place to Work® will provide benchmarks on practice, detailed feedback on identified strengths and weaknesses and paths to improvement. The submission addresses three key areas:

1. Integration of a sustainably healthy approach into strategy, planning and objectives.

2. Using an evidence-based approach to health promotion.

3. Matching organisational supports to workplace and employee needs and demands, including the evaluation of outcomes

The Healthy Development Program is designed not only to highlight the positive investment an organisation is making in sustainability but to be a living breathing guide to practitioners in their health promotion journey.
