Mayo Clinic Well-Being Index

Mayo Clinic offers all its employees access to a well-being assessment. The online self-assessment tool is web-based and relies on the well-validated Well-Being Index.

The Well-Being Index allows individuals to calibrate their well-being relative to their professional peers nationally as well as to colleagues locally. The assessment takes less than 1 minute to complete. The tool is 100% anonymous - individual information and scores are private.

After answering the nine questions in the Index, individuals immediately receive their individualized score along with information on how their level of well-being compares to others and whether the level of well-being places the individual at increased risk for potentially serious personal and professional consequences. Additionally, individuals are directed to a number of local and national resources that can help promote well-being. The Well-Being Index reminds individuals to assess their well-being periodically. Scores are tracked over time, enabling individuals to monitor their well-being over time so that pro-active adjustments in self-care, both inside and outside of work, can be made.

While individual results of the Well-Being Index are anonymous, Mayo Clinic receives aggregate reports, describing the well-being of staff relative to national norms, by role: physician, resident/fellow, nurse, medical student, or other health care worker. This data informs Mayo's ongoing work to support its staff.
