What tools have you found useful in evaluating separate initiatives and the wellness program as a whole?

A great article recently posted on Benefits Canada noted "It is time for a new era of public/private health population pilot projects. With monetary and non-monetary health management incentives funded by provincial governments, the organizations that have a wellness business case process in place can deliver a positive sustainable ROI from wellness investments. This can have a positive and significant influence on a large portion of the population across a province and across generations, and can make a meaningful positive contribution to population health on a provincial scale."

When we were first thinking of the idea of The Sandbox, we used one of my favorite tools to survey our stakeholders and partners about what they wanted to see in the site - an online survey program. It was easy to use (even for a low-tech person like me), offered many different ways to collect information quickly - and provides a good, visual analysis of the survey results. You can export the findings and share easily with your wellness champion committee etc. Although there are many different providers to choose from, from what I understand, these tools are generally reasonably priced as well - making them a useful tool for gathering feedback and assessing the impact about your wellness program or a specific activity.

One of the tools our school leadership team has been using is the Tell Them From Me Survey data. There are a number of areas on student wellness and also how actively engaged kids are in activities in the school.

Hi Mike - does your school or district also assess or evaluate staff wellness-related areas? If yes, how so?

Our school uses the "Tell them from me survey" to get feedback from students.
