Building a Culture of Health: Inquire

Understand your health culture. Ask your wellness committee how to involve everyone in creating a healthy worksite.

Work with your team to ask, listen, and learn from colleagues and leaders:

  • What are the benefits of a healthy worksite?
  • What would motivate you to help create a healthier workplace?
  • What needs to change to make our worksite healthy?

Collect information in a variety of ways:

  • Assess how your policies, practices, and environment can support employee health.
  • Survey the interests and needs of management and other employees.
  • Monitor employee participation in and satisfaction with your wellness program.
  • Understand workforce issues through an overview of medical, workers’ compensation, and disability claims; sick leave; and health risks.

Use information you collect as a baseline. Draw on it to set priorities and measure progress.
