The Science behind OHFB
The OHFB is based on the Job Demands-Resources (JD-R)* model and theoretical framework. The JD-R is a predictive model that indicates the impact of the work environment on employee wellbeing and the impact this has on individual and organisational outcomes.

These enable us to compare an organisation’s results to what is reasonable for all employees and workplaces across the globe regardless of size, industry sector or culture.
The OHFB is a predictive measurement model highlighting both the positive and negative aspects of work-related wellbeing with the aim of identifying employees at risk of sub-optimum outcomes.
We employ psychometric technology used in high stakes testing to ensure precision measurement of employee perceptions in the organisation. Our research process has included extensive norming procedures, statistical reliability and validation studies, including confirmation of psychometric properties and cultural sensitivity.
