Measuring

To take action, we need to know where we are starting.

Well-being is the sum of our individual perspectives and community conditions.

Our individual perspectives are shaped by our life experiences and reflect how we think, feel, and function in our daily lives. Community conditions are made up of the places we live, play, work, learn, and worship. Both are important components of well-being.

We uncover and monitor data and trends that affect our daily lives.

Wello's primary data collection tool is adopted from the World Health Organization’s Quality of Life – BREF survey. This will collect the local, Brown County voice in four discrete elements of health and well-being. These include an individual’s:

  • Physical
    Well-Being

    Nutrition, physical activity, sleep, pain management, stress

  • Emotional
    Well-Being

    Emotional health, sense of purpose, outlook, isolation

  • Community
    Well-Being

    Environment, civic engagement, financial health, lifelong learning

  • Social
    Well-Being

    Relationships, spirituality, support, connection

Our measurement tool has been tested and proven to effectively measure well-being. Wello's research partners include the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay and St. Norbert College.

It’s about good schools to prepare our kids for the future and opportunities for lifelong learning.
