What is the WEMWBS Employee Mental Health Survey?

Developed by leading experts from UK universities and the NHS, WEMWBS (Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale) has been licensed to New Leaf Health to deliver to organisations UK-wide.

The survey consists of validated questions which employees complete anonymously, ultimately giving a score to the state of mental health in your workplace. People who complete the survey receive immediate feedback on their score, including next steps to improve mental wellbeing, which can be linked to your exisitng EAP and internal pathways.

As an organisation, you will be able to understand the mental health scores of various sectors and demographics of your workforce.

What are the benefits of the Employee Mental Health Survey?

Whether your business is small or large, stress and pressure are unfortunate byproducts of any modern workplace, and given the uncertainty of the coronavirus situation in the UK, looking after the mental health of employees is more important than ever.

Working remotely or at home offers unique challenges on top of normal work-related pressure. These can include:

  • Isolation and feeling cut-off.
  • Stress, arising from a feeling of being ‘always on’.
  • Difficulty drawing lines between home and work that could lead to anxiety.

This survey offers your organisation the ability to remotely gauge the mental wellbeing of your workforce using validated, expert-developed scoring. We often recommend repeating this survey after a set amount of time to assess the change in scores for your workforce, which can help to inform the effectiveness of your mental wellbeing offerings and interventions.
