Next-generation HRA: Total Health Index (THI) Discovery

The THI Discovery™ survey is the industry’s most robust employee health risk assessment combined with employee engagement and a productivity metrics survey for the global workforce. Data across four dimensions creates one comprehensive and powerful picture of total health for the employee and your organization:

  • Physical: biometrics, nutrition, physical activity and more
  • Mental: stress, anxiety, coping skills and more
  • Work: engagement, productivity and resilience
  • Life: financial security, relationships and work-life blending

The assessment is much more than just a compilation of current and historical employee health information. It’s a robust, comprehensive view of employee well-being that covers four critical dimensions of well-being.

Improve employee health and workplace results

By completing their THI, your employees know their Total Health scores and then what they can do to improve total wellbeing. These insights include direct, actionable steps, and encouragement so employees are motivated to actively participate in achieving better wellbeing.

From an organizational perspective, employers gain a birds-eye view of what’s needed and can then seamlessly direct employees to specific solutions within your support services network. It is also a global solution that covers employees wherever they’re located. The result is a healthier workforce with reduced healthcare-related costs, fewer absences, and better productivity.
