Wellbeing Questionnaire

The Mace team at Grosvenor Crescent attempted to quantify wellbeing statistically. A wellbeing questionnaire was created. This questionnaire is used by the NHS to test Wellbeing in the UK and was created by the University of Warwick Medical School (Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale (WEMWBS)).

The questionnaire involves 14 Questions with five response options available per question. Each response option generates a score which is then totalled and a Wellbeing category then assigned which is compared to a Wellbeing Scale. This Wellbeing Scale then allows you to adapt or maintain your behaviours to improve or maintain your Wellbeing.

Respondents were asked to fill out the self-assessment questionnaire retrospectively, based upon how they were feeling before the scheme was initiated (at this time in 2016), then again after the scheme and subsequent initiatives had been initiated (based upon how they had been feeling in the past two weeks). The following benefits were established:

  • The project team are more aware of their general health and wellbeing
  • Positive lifestyle changes have been observed amongst the project team
  • Members of the project team have been empowered to speak about mental health and wellbeing

This data has since been used to inform the adoption of wellbeing across the whole of Mace. This was an attempt at increasing occupational health and wellbeing on site, with an appropriate metric in place.
