MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - September 28, 2016) - RedBrick Health, a leading provider of technology-enabled enterprise solutions that improve population health and well-being, today announced the launch of RedBrick Health Culture Check, a new Culture of Health assessment. A growing body of research finds that establishing a Culture of Health is a powerful prerequisite to producing an engaged, higher-performing workforce. RedBrick's Culture Check reveals both leadership and employee attitudes and beliefs about the place they work, and uncovers opportunities to leverage policy, space and program design to achieve better results.
Culture Check provides a powerful and efficient starting point for employers looking to implement or upgrade their employee well-being program. It can also provide the first step in turning around an under-performing program. Culture Check is powered by direct insights gained from those who matter most: employees. Unlike typical self-assessments and scorecards, Culture Check reaches deeply into employee populations, elicits real and rich feedback, and provides strategic guidance and realistic recommendations based on validated metrics and evidence-based best-practice research.
"We hear a lot of talk about the importance of culture in setting the stage for broader engagement and better population health. However, until now, employers lacked a comprehensive and validated way to measure it," said Dan Ryan, chief executive officer at RedBrick Health. "Our approach to this essential topic parallels our approach in general: we focus on evidence-driven innovation and helping our clients do what works, not what's conventional or simply assumed to work."
RedBrick Health Culture Check applies a unique four-pillar approach that produces a benchmarked report and detailed, actionable recommendations tailored to each company's situation.
- Leader Viewpoint: Brief but structured discussions with key leaders capture essential insights on foundational elements such as policies, perceptions and practices
- Employee Viewpoint: Built around a scientifically validated eight-dimensional online assessment developed by experts at the University of Michigan, this element captures companywide and location-specific perceptions
- Site Scan: A structured site assessment that gauges the physical environments, including workspace, exercise space, eating space, outdoor space and the nearby community
- Program Scan: Our team pinpoints opportunities to troubleshoot program design and implementation by benchmarking against our national "What the Best Do Better" database
Companies that use Culture Check get exclusive access to guidance with one of the nation's leading researchers on Culture of Health, Dr. Mary Marzec, RedBrick's senior researcher. Dr. Marzec led development and published validation work and other research on the core Culture of Health assessment at University of Michigan's Health Management Research Center.
"The results have allowed for a more systematic approach to our wellness program," said Hal Luttschwager CPCU, CLU, ARM, Missoula County Risk Manager. "Our organization is more unified around supporting employee health after using the Culture of Health assessment."
