ACRE employees set a total of 102 targets for their own wellbeing!

Last autumn, ACRE offered its personnel the opportunity to take part in the Firstbeat assessment on well-being. 90 per cent of our employees were interested in the opportunity to learn more about their own stress factors, exercising and recovery.

94 per cent of the participants made at least one change to their lifestyle. The three most popular targets were relaxing regularly, going to sleep early and taking time to eat and drink in the rush of things.

With the help of the well-being assessment, we wanted to invest in our personnel’s well-being concretely. The well-being assessment makes it possible for everyone to identify the factors affecting their well-being and to find the most suitable solutions for them to make better choices and little changes in their everyday lives. Everyone filling in the feedback questionnaire (response rate: 50 per cent) felt that the well-being assessment helped to promote well-being.

The 3-day measurement was easy to carry out. Many participants chose to have two working days and one leisure day as their measurement days. After the measurement period, the participants received their own personal reports, and they discussed their results with a coach in a personal feedback session. In the feedback session, everyone was given personal tips and recommendations for concrete action to improve their well-being. A total of 102 targets were set as part of the well-being assessment (2.8 targets/person). There was a rather balanced distribution of targets between sleep, exercise, nutrition and stress management.
