The Gallop Healthways Well-Being Index is Updated

The team at Activetics are all great fans of the Gallup Healthways model. While the fundamentals remain the same it’s interesting to see the enhancements they have made to the model in 2014.

Gallup-Healthways Well-Being 5™, is based on extensive collaborative research by Gallup and Healthways. The updated Well-Being Index measures well-being with even more power and scope than previous well-being measurement tools, including the earlier version of the Well-Being Index.

The updated Well-Being Index now reflects the five essential elements of well-being:

  • Purpose: Liking what you do each day and being motivated to achieve your goals
  • Social: Having supportive relationships and love in your life
  • Financial: Managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security
  • Community: Liking where you live, feeling safe and having pride in your community
  • Physical: Having good health and enough energy to get things done daily
