Health and wellbeing metrics and demographics


We’ve added new information, case studies and useful links to the health and wellbeing section of our website on using metrics and demographics. 

Metrics are readily available and enable you to prove the case for health and wellbeing initiatives to the board, target key areas for improvement and highlight hot spots for further support. The new section on our website covers:

  • What are metrics
  • How health and wellbeing can be measured
  • Key questions to ask before you start putting metrics together
  • The Electronic Staff Record (ESR)
  • The Health and Social Care Information Centre’s sickness absence rates

Using demographics to gain a better understanding of your staff can help you target and satisfy their health and wellbeing needs in a meaningful way. Our new section includes information on: 

  • What are demographics?
  • Why use them?
  • Where to start?
  • NHS examples
  • Useful links
