What we Do

Measure of Well-being

Do you know how your employees are faring? We help you track employee well-being over time and identify teams at risk from high stress levels.

Our Professional Well-being Tracker is an online survey consisting of two parts. The first part is a scientifically validated survey that identifies teams that are at low risk, fragile, challenged or high risk from stress.

The Professional Well-being Tracker's focus on stress stems from the close relation of stress to psychosocial and physical ill-being such as anxiety, depression, musculoskeletal disorders and cardiovascular disease. Hence stress levels are a good indicator of overall well-being in the organisation.

The first part of The Professional Well-being Tracker can be used independently of our other services as part of your employee well-being program, to regularly monitor the level of well-being in the company.

Sources of Distress

For those teams or groups of employees where the well-being is low and stress is high, we use a combination of qualitative and quantitative tools to discover possible sources of distress.

Here the second part of the Professional Well-being Tracker can be used as a source of quantitative data. It is a survey designed to discover psychosocial risk factors in an organisation.

As qualitative tools we use interviews and workshops to look at everything from how teams work together as a unit to policies and practices that might affect the well-being of certain teams, or groups of employees, in a negative way.

Where there are indications that single employees in a team are suffering from ill-being we take action in regards to that individual. These actions are kept confidential between PRO Services and the employee in question.

Suitable Countermeasures

In collaboration with your employees, we design a range of suitable countermeasures that fits your employees’ needs as well as your organisational culture.

The collaboration with your employees will ensure that the countermeasures are tailored to suit your employees’ needs for reduced stress levels and more well-being at work, as well as your organisation’s need for increased efficiency and productivity, improved product / service quality and improved bottom line.

As your organisation moves forward to implement the countermeasures that have been chosen as most suitable for you, we will be by your side and guide you through the process.

Our Clients

"I attended a training provided by Eva Gannert from PRO Services which gave me an excellent, easy to use, and comprehensive tool for understanding and effectively managing stress in my teams. The hands-on exercises quickly taught me how to effectively use the tool; the comprehensive, detailed handout that Eva prepared allows me to refresh my knowledge on demand and is as powerful as a course book - but even easier to use. I can’t imagine working without tools and knowledge that Eva shared and I’m confident about the hugely positive (both short- and long-term) value for me and my teams. Time well invested."
