This international healthcare group with 33,000 global employees has leveraged data and analytics to define the focus of its well-being program and track progress and effectiveness. Bupa UK uses its own app, Bupa Boost, to determine what its employees — and the general population — want from its wellness program: a way to address hydration, exercise, nutrition and sleep. Similarly, data can determine how employees think about their program and senior leadership in regards to mental health.
For Bupa UK, the research found that 68% of business leaders cited a “stiff upper lip attitude” at the executive level, which creates barriers for achieving a successful program, according to the report. Leadership by-in, with visible participation, is the company’s key to creating a legitimate program.
