A Scientific Approach to Employee Wellbeing
Richard Doig, the founder and CEO of hug, first developed the idea for hug in 2017. In conversing with his peers, Richard realised that employees’ mental, physical and financial stresses were worsening.
In turn, this was impacting the workforce’s personal and professional lives, as well as their performance in the workplace.
At the time, many employers used a singular, one-off employee survey to assess the overall welling of their workforce. These surveys lacked depth and often didn’t highlight critical challenges employees were facing.
Determined to do something about this, the idea behind hug was born.
hug is built upon behavioural science and psychology principles, providing businesses with invaluable insights into their employee feedback. A multi-analytical and self-help platform, hug, amasses employee surveys.
Each survey is interlinked and covers employee productivity, such as engagement within the workplace, mental and financial well-being, physical health, and lifestyle. The prime vision behind developing hug was to create an elementary platform based on a scientific approach and bypass the traditional procedures of conducting surveys.
hug can be tailored to suit any business—regardless of size, location, and industry. Employees can go through hug and its micro-surveys within minutes, facilitating a seamless feedback process; the platform is easy to navigate, further encouraging participation.
Holistic HR Solution
The holistic HR solutions provider offers customised scoring of employee wellness as well. It scores each employee based on their mental and financial health, lifestyle, and workplace engagement.
The results reflect an employee’s wellness, empowering hug to offer personalised support. Owing to its employee-centric feature-sets, hug improves the average survey participation rate to 70 per cent compared to the 10-15 promised by traditional approaches. A critical
element of employee feedback for ensuring higher participation in surveys is the participant’s
hug meets this requirement head-on by offering absolute confidentiality to its employees, ensuring their responses are thoroughly firewalled and their scores anonymised. Importantly, employees are not alone in this—employers get scored too.
