Uprise Wellbeing Check

The Uprise Wellbeing Check, something Uprise customers use on a regular basis as a part of the Uprise Employee Assistance Program to track the overall wellbeing and stress levels of their employees, is made up of 2 key parts. The first is the WHO-5, a set of 5 questions that have been proven to be an effective measure of an individual’s stress levels. The second is a multiple choice question that allows employees the opportunity to confidentially highlight their areas/issues that have impacted their ability to work effectively in the past 2 weeks.

Upon completing the Uprise Wellbeing Check, employees are presented with an overall wellbeing score that puts them into 1 of 5 categories based on their score. As an organisation, the Wellbeing Check can present you with an overall score for the company based on all of the employees’ results.



Falling into the lowest percentile, below 16%, employees who score in this range are potentially struggling in their day to day and are at a higher than normal risk of having or developing a mental illness.

Below Average / Struggling

Scoring between 17% and 31% when compared to other respondents. Employees in this category generally say that they are doing ok but they tend to have more hards than most. This is highly stressed group that may have trouble performing at their best and is at risk of developing a more serious condition or reaching a point of crisis.



The healthy/average range, where most employees score, generally means that employees are moderately stressed. They feel like they are managing ok but they do not feel like they are on top of everything. Their stress can have an impact on their professional lives affecting things like performance and engagement.

This group is doing well. They have relatively low stress and feel on top of the majority of their lives. For this group, there may be potential for improvement in one or two of the elements of the Uprise Wellbeing Check; mood, energy or engagement.

The last question of the Uprise Wellbeing Check allows employees to select multiple issues that have had an impact on their ability to work effectively.

The results for this section are presented as a percentage of the total number of respondents who selected each. Employees can select more than one when submitting their answers.

Information here can be a good indicator of the issues employees perceive as impacting their ability to perform at their best.
