A strong social climate has direct health benefits, such as less stress, reduced risk of illness, longer life expectancy and quicker recovery from illness. Such a social climate also makes constructive individual and organizational change easier to achieve. The Well Engaged Action Tracker is an online system (for phone, tablet and computer) that tracks and celebrates over 20 actions that foster strong social connections at work.
Employees and leaders can play constructive roles in fostering a cohesive work atmosphere. Three strategies for enhancing the social climate are tracked:
Participants use the action tracker to report each action they take. After participants submit action(s), they see a report that summarizes their work to date. The report ranks their efforts among other participants. Gold, silver and bronze Well Engaged awards are granted to participants depending on the total number of actions they complete in various categories.
