As well-being programs (and vendors) grow, it can become increasingly difficult for leaders to keep track of all the moving parts that drive program success. One of the biggest challenges is understanding the value that employee well-being programs bring to the table. Fortunately, for the last 16 years, Limeade has been developing and improving powerful self-service wellness analytics tools to help leaders track and visualize the impact of these programs.
We all know how cumbersome and fragmented wellness analytics can be. So, we asked customers what they need to prove the value of their well-being program and how they envision the next level of reporting. They shared that all proof points and all reporting need to be centered around four simple, yet powerful questions:
Are my employees participating in the program?
Is the program helping me impact the people results I hired Limeade to solve?
Do my employees enjoy the program?
How do I make my program better?
These questions lead us to optimizing the Limeade Reporting Suite, specifically the Limeade Value Dashboard.
Self-service wellness analytics and insights with the Limeade Value Dashboard
The Limeade Reporting Suite is available through the self-service and intuitive Limeade Admin Console. With just a few clicks, program owners, leaders or subject matter experts can surface actionable insights.
But this is just the first step. In the upcoming months, we’re making updates to our self-service wellness analytics tools. The Limeade Reporting Suite will allow customers to see the impact of their employee well-being initiatives on key business metrics. This helps them prove the value of their investments and initiatives by:
Tracking program KPIs. The Limeade Reporting Suite allows you to track the KPIs of your employee well-being programs. This can include participation, registration, returning users, activity participation and resource utilization. You’re always in the know whether your investment in employee well-being is paying off in tangible ways.
Understanding the impact of well-being on people results. Employee well-being has a direct impact on people results such as burnout, turnover, engagement and health. The Limeade Value Dashboard helps you to understand this impact by aggregating data from various sources and presenting it in a clear and easy to digest format.
Making informed decisions about resource allocation. With the insights provided by the Limeade Value Dashboard, you can make more informed decisions about where to allocate resources to support employee well-being. For example, if the dashboard shows that burnout rates are high in a certain population, you may decide to invest more in mental health support activities.
Managing high-risk populations. Another key area the Limeade Reporting Suite focuses on is the high-risk populations — meaning the 5% of your workforce that accounts for 52% of your health spendings. We’ve formed a strategic alliance with the market leader in clinical analytics. Coming soon, you’ll be able to better identify high-risk populations and target proven interventions to them.
How Limeade customers use self-service wellness analytics to influence business results
Limeade customers get actionable insights into the health of their employees that have a big impact on business results. For example, the wellness analytics aggregated in the Limeade Value Dashboard provided one customer with insights into burnout and turnover. This resulted in 15% lower health costs for a 4-year-program. Another optimized their program for caregivers to identify burnout risk and get recommendations for taking action — resulting in 50% less turnover.
Reporting is key to the success of your well-being program and all related initiatives. You cannot afford to spend countless hours manually compiling data to prove the value of your program. We listened to program owners and admins and focused on decreasing tedious admin tasks so that you can focus on the more important strategic aspects of your work.
