WHM in 2022

The new hybrid work environment has made it more difficult to reach the employees with WHM measurements. That is why VIABZ has implemented a hybrid and holistic WHM approach.

We help you to create a WHM concept tailored for you needs and inclusive for employees across different age groups, fitness levels and work models.

What is WHM?

Health is the most precious human asset and forms the basis for physical and mental wellbeing. The goal of workplace health management (WHM) is therefore to design the framework conditions, structures and processes in a company in such a way that the health of employees is promoted during work. Through various measures, the employees of a company are enabled and motivated to behave in away that promotes health.

What is the difference between WHM and WHP?

Workplace health management (WHM) focuses on the processes, culture and leadership within companies as the basic construct for the health and wellbeing of employees.Workplace health promotion (WHP), on the other hand, focuses on the individuals within the company and their state of health. Workplace health promotion is therefore an essential component of comprehensive and systematic workplace health management in the company.

Why introduce WHM?

The world of work is characterised by constant change. Companies must remain flexible. Therefore, healthy and committed employees are the most important foundation for a successful company.

Healthy employees are less prone to absenteeism due to illness, which results in a multitude of benefits for the company. Health management measures improve the well-being of the workforce, increase their motivation and productivity.

WHM initiatives also have an influence on the image as an employer and thus contribute to employer branding. This not only helps to attract the best employees, but also to keep them in the company for as long as possible. Companies thus benefit in many ways from systematic workplace health management.

Possible WHM measures

The spectrum of possible workplace health management measures is wide and there are few limits to creativity. What is important is that the measures are based on a systematic workplace health management concept.

For example, WHM measures can be divided into the following categories.

1. health-promoting organisational structures
Examples: Flexible working hours, ergonomic workplaces, rest room, healthy catering options.

2. health-promoting behaviour of managers
Examples: Training measures for managers, employee discussions, sick leave discussions, team-building measures.

3. health-promoting behaviour of employees
Examples: Company fitness, offers to promote physical activity, expert seminars on health topics, active breaks, health days.

4. occupational integration management / case management
Examples: Support meetings, insurance cover, defined and optimised integration processes, regular further training for managers and HR.

It quickly becomes clear how many possibilities there are to use measures to promote the health of employees. It is important to understand that the appropriate measures can be very different depending on the company. Since WHM measures are based on the correspondingly defined WHM goals and the target groups of employees and functions can also be very different, each company needs a combination of measures that is optimally suited to itself.
This allows for maximum effectiveness and optimal use of resources.

Finding the right way is not easy, but we at VIABZ are here to help you. We are happy to support you in optimising or fundamentally designing your BGM concept, defining goals, target groups and selecting measures. Or how about starting with acomprehensive assessment of your current situation? Let VIABZ Advice help you to raise your workplace health management to a new level.

Großartig. VIABZ hat mich erfolgreich durch den Corona-Winter gebracht :-D.

Danke VIABZ und ich bin sehr aufs Sommerprogramm gespannt
