Since 2008, Gallup and Healthways have partnered to understand the well-being of both individuals and populations. “Well-being” is a concept that captures the important aspects of how people feel about and experience their daily lives — in other words, well-being encompasses more than physical health or economic indicators. Together, we measure and study well-being so we can act efficiently and effectively to improve it: in individuals, for organizations and across geographies.
Today, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® is the most proven, mature and comprehensive measure of well-being in the world. Measuring well-being gives leaders a unique perspective on where their populations are and where they can be — information that is vital to inform well-being improvement strategies.
