According to Sibson’s announcement of the study, data gathered from the online survey will allow Sibson to establish a set of benchmarks for peer organizations both within the hospital and health care sector and beyond. Sibson did a similar survey last year of college and university employers – its 2008 Healthy Campus Study.
Goals of the new study include:
- Benchmarking organizations’ workforce metrics against those of a wide range of major U.S. employers;
- Establishing a Healthy Enterprise Index that will allow organizations to understand where they rank, and that will be shared with participating hospitals and institutions; and
- Helping organizations establish a business case for a healthy enterprise program by understanding best practices and by leveraging current data that supports the effectiveness of these initiatives.
