Saint Louis University

Comprehensive assessments are available for organizations that are interested in gaining a greater level of detail about their healthy workplace practices or the health and well-being of the workforce. OHI members can also tailor specific assessments to meet the unique needs of an organization.

The typical cost associated with each assessment is listed below and comes with a report and a 1-3 hour action planning session. However, due to organizational size, organizational type (non-profit vs. for-profit) and/or complexity of the analyses desired, the cost of the assessment may fluctuate. The costs below cover all organizations within a 50-mile radius of Saint Louis University. If your organization is outside of this 50-mile radius, please contact OHI for more information.

Assessment of Employee Well-being

This assessment provides a comprehensive report on a variety of factors that have been shown repeatedly to affect organizational outcomes.

If your organization has had difficulty collecting employee health and well-being data in the past or it has been 2-3 years since that data was collected, then this assessment may be for you.

  • Basic Cost: $5,000-$9,000
  • Description: Assessment includes online survey of employees, feedback report, a feedback session with managers, and recommendations for next steps. The results typically identify strengths and areas of improvement for the organization and action planning sessions typically are used to discuss possible interventions for improving areas of weakness and maintaining areas of strength.
  • General Time Required for Employees: Approximately 10-15 minutes. However, an organization is involved in determining the content and can choose to add additional items to the survey. Additional items generally increase the length of time for survey completion.

General Assessment of Healthy Workplace Practices

This assessment provides a comprehensive report on the general effectiveness of practices in each of the five healthy workplace areas: employee involvement, work-life balance, employee recognition, employee growth and development, and health and safety.

If your organization is seeking to identify leverage points to improve employee health and well-being as a way of creating competitive advantage, then this assessment may be for you.

  • Basic Cost: $8,000-$12,000
  • Description: This assessment also includes the employee well-being assessment and demonstrates linkages between assessments of practice areas and employee well-being outcomes. It consists of an online survey of employees, feedback report, a feedback session with managers, and recommendations for next steps. The report includes a specific emphasis on identifying high-leverage practice areas.
  • General Time Required for Employees: Approximately 20-25 minutes. However, an organization is involved in determining the content and can choose to add additional items to the survey. Additional items generally increase the length of time for survey completion.

Specific Assessment of a Workplace Practice

This assessment provides a comprehensive report on the effectiveness of a specific workplace practice or set of practices. For example, specific assessments can be used to evaluate a stress management program, a suggestion system, a recognition program, or an employee health program.

If your organization is interested in learning more about a specific practice that exists in your organization, what is working, what is not working, and where the organization can optimize the practice's benefits for itself and employees, then this assessment may be for you.

  • Basic Cost: $10,000 to $15,000
  • Description: This assessment includes an online survey of employees, focus groups with employees, a comprehensive report, a feedback session for managers, and recommendations for improving the practice or set of practices.
  • General Time Required for Employees: Because surveys and focus group questions will differ from practice to practice and organization to organization, general time required for employees will differ.

Assessments Tailored to an Organizational Outcome

This assessment provides a comprehensive report on an organizational outcome. Outcomes emphasized by OHI assessments include retention, recruitment, sickness absence, non-sickness absence, healthcare costs, accident or injury rates and customer satisfaction. For example, an organization may be interested in improving retention. OHI members would design an assessment specific focused on identifying reasons why employees leave.

If your organization has a problem with retention, absenteeism, or any of the other outcomes listed above, then this assessment may be for you.

  • Basic Cost: 
    • 10 or fewer employees ($2,000)
    • 11-50 employees ($5,000)
    • 51-100 employees ($7,500)
    • 101-200 employees ($10,000)
    • 201-999 employees ($15,000)
    • 1,000-5,000 employees ($25,000)
  • Description: These assessments typically involve an online survey of employees and managers, focus groups, and a review of organizational data. This assessment is limited to organizations with 5,000 employees or fewer and can be focused on a particular site or department, rather than an entire organization. The cost includes all surveys, focus groups, and other data collection, a comprehensive report, a feedback session with managers and recommendations for improving the focal outcome.
  • General Time Required for Employees: Because surveys and focus group questions will differ from outcome to outcome and organization to organization, general time required for employees will differ.
