Digital Approaches to Wellbeing at Work

The use of digital platforms to understand, provide and incentivise staff wellbeing is becoming increasingly commonplace. Wearables and blue-tooth devices nudge and support achievement of healthy behavioural change while surveys, apps and websites provide information, advice and guidance in making healthier choices.

All of these approaches provide individuals and organisations with the data to develop new approaches to wellbeing and target need, as well as measure what’s working across population health.

Organisations harness digital approaches for staff wellbeing in varied ways. RAND Europe’s research spotlights key considerations in this fascinating and dynamic arena.
