Pascal® Stress Audit Tool FAQs
We believe Pascal® is the first tool of its kind providing employees with a breakdown of how they are feeling at both work and home. Using a unique scoring system Pascal® assesses work and home balance based on the pressure levels in 8 key areas of your life. Each of the 8 areas are scored separately to help you identify where you may need some support to improve your health and wellbeing. It also allows companies to personalise and include referral pathways to existing resources such as EAP, Mental Health First Aiders and more.
No, your results are private and confidential and you need to register with an email address and password of your choice. So it is confidential, unless of course, you choose to share it with somebody.
Pascal® is typically completed in under 10 minutes.
Yes, but because of the unique scoring system we would present these as stand-alone results and they would not contribute towards the overall work and home scores.
We are the first health and wellbeing company in the UK to achieve Cyber Essential Plus accreditation – the government’s information security process that confirms that a high level of cyber security controls have been implemented.
It is recommended that the latest versions of web browsers are used to ensure Pascal® runs smoothly.
The system was developed using the expertise of the Healthy Performance team who have decades of experience in health and wellbeing. The tool also uses many validated questions to ensure accuracy of results. We’ve also tried to balance engagement with support for employees, and a unique aggregated company report.
You can complete Pascal twice in a 12 month period and your organisation will decide which time frames this can be carried out in. Typically we suggest completing it 3-6 months apart to monitor progress and allow time for training and development to be carried out.
On completion of Pascal®, users can access an online support and advice resource called Take5. This library contains over 200 videos, podcasts and downloadable PDF documents. Advice and support are tailored to the needs of the user based on how they respond to Pascal. Users can also be signposted to existing support your organisation may offer such as an EAP or occupational health service.
Your organisation will receive an anonymised/aggregated company report to identify key ‘hot spots’. This allows you to start building or add value to your wellbeing strategy using targeted data. Where appropriate, results can be segmented to show departmental, gender and age comparisons however a minimum of 20 people need to be included to maintain anonymity.
MyWellbeingCheck® takes approximately 5-8 minutes and you can complete it once per calendar month.
Wellbeing Score – Calculated using a unique scoring algorithm based on a person’s responses to the 9 lifestyle areas assessed. A score of 100 would mean a person is following all the recommended advice and guidance across each of the 9 areas.
Wellbeing Age – Based on how a person responds to the questions the system will determine whether they are younger or older than their actual age. The healthier the responses, the younger their Wellbeing Age will be in comparison to their actual age.
