The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated many mental health issues and further revealed health inequities that may be influenced by social determinants of health (SDOH) and the lack of belonging felt by some employees. HERO and Mercer collaborated to develop best practice scores for these three key areas: mental health and well-being, social determinants of health (SDOH), and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). These special best practice scores were derived from the current set of questions in the HERO Scorecard (v5) and are now available to all HERO Scorecard completers. This webinar will explain how the mental health and well-being, SDOH, and DEI best practice scores were developed and scored. The webinar will also educate participants on how they can use these scores to identify and prioritize opportunities within their organizations and use best practices to address them.
