Gain insight about the challenges to wellbeing in your workplace
What is on the mind of the employees?
How do we report?
The heatmap shows several reason codes. When a code is marked in red, it means that we have registered this challenge in your workplace.
When one of your employees has been in contact with the response team, one or two reason codes are registered.
Specifically, we take the reason codes we have registered in the group and divide them by how many active users you have for the relevant month. Thereafter, the result is compared with every other group in Howdy.
It provides insight into how much the specific reason codes or challenges take up with you compared to the average of other Howdy groups.
The red colours
You can use the colours as a marker for how much each reason code takes up. The darker the red, the higher concentration of conversations with the specific reason code compared to other Howdy groups.
When reason codes are not marked in red, it means that we have not registered incidents that relate to the reason code in question, though this does not necessarily mean that the challenge does not occur.
The levels for each reason code are calculated by counting how many times each reason code has been registered. On occasions when two reason codes have been registered, how much weight to afford to either code is accounted for by assigning one as a primary and the other as a secondary. This number is divided by the number of active users in the group for the month in question. Through this calculation you get a number, which reflects the concentration of a given reason code for a group in a particular month.
Your numbers for each reason code are compared with the numbers for other Howdy groups. The tenth of the group, which has the highest numbers, are assigned the darkest red and so forth.
To ensure the anonymity of the individual employee, the heatmap only reports on groups with at least ten replies within the given period of time.
The heatmap for Howdy Body is calculated in the same manner as for mental wellbeing, though the numbers are only compared to other Body cases.
From data to dialogue
You can take advantage of the heatmap in your dialogue on wellbeing. As an example, you can show the heatmap to the team or the workplace and ask the employees: “Do you recognize this picture?” Feel free to be curious and inquire with the employees how much the challenges take up of their lives before you start to work out solutions.
