How Do Your Wellness Initiatives Compare With Best Practices?

Well-designed, comprehensive and evidence-based workplace health promotion programs can improve employees’ health risk profile and lower their healthcare costs.

But not all employers have the tools and knowledge to design and implement world-class employee health and well-being initiatives. Wondering where you stand? Since 2009, the HERO Health and Well-Being Best Practices Scorecard in Collaboration with Mercer© (the “Scorecard”) has helped employers measure how their efforts align with industry best practices.

  • Data to help reduce turnover and improve financial performance
  • Inventory of health and well-being best practices compiled by leaders in the field
  • Tools to evaluate their approach and learn about best practices
  • National norms to validate current strategies, identify opportunities and set goals for improvement
  • Actionable strategies to improve outcomes and measure progress over time
  • US and international versions available in English, Spanish and Portuguese
