How do company culture and employer health and well-being practices affect employee engagement and turnover? Do employees feel supported by the culture in the workplace?

Those are some of the questions the Health Enhancement Research Organization seeks to answer in the HERO Scorecard Engagement and Retention Study, launched in collaboration with Mercer. The study will review data collected from the HERO Health and Well-Being Best Practices Scorecard for HERO scorecard completers between 2014 and 2017. Six domain scores serve as predictors of outcomes related to retention rates and perceived organizational support.

According to Jessica Grossmeier, Ph.D., vice president of research for HERO, past studies have demonstrated a correlation between companies that perform well on the scorecard and those that demonstrate strong financial performance, as well as a connection between best practices and health care costs. More recent analyses conducted by Mercer identified a relationship between HERO scorecard scores and employer-reported turnover rates.
