Aduro, Harvard Join Forces to Promote Human Well-Being


Digital health and wellness company Aduro this week announced its membership in the Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise (SHINE) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The alliance aims to support well-being research that advances human flourishing in life and the workplace.

SHINE conducts applied research to understand how the workplace environment and culture affect workforce well-being, productivity and business outcomes. The goal of the program is to discover the connections between what employees do at work and how they regard their well-being and the organizational culture. The program also aims to understand the links between mental, physical and psychosocial health and work performance.

Aduro is introducing a new index based on SHINE’s research on human flourishing, which centers on six central domains: happiness and life satisfaction, mental and physical health, meaning and purpose, character and virtue, close social relationships and financial and material stability.

The index is designed to help organizations better understand, predict and influence behavior and aggregate both active and passive data, so that organizations can drive individual and population-level strategies for improving well-being.

“Aduro has incorporated SHINE research on human flourishing into its data-driven human performance approach, which empowers organizations to leverage real-time assessment and deliver interventions that build flourishing workforces,” said Renee Petrie, vice president of healthcare product strategy at Aduro.

Petrie told MedTech Boston™ that the index will allow for more continuous measurements of the data, which could be more valuable to individuals and organizations.

Participants will complete the index and get instant feedback to see areas that they are and are not flourishing and are provided with human performance interventions and actions to take that are aligned with the individual’s needs and preferences, Petrie told us.
