Case study

Going global with health and wellbeing analytics
By Gen Barron, Global Wellness Consultant - Medtronic
As published in Strategic HR Review Magazine, Vol 12, No 1, January 2013, pp 5-9.

Abstract
Purpose

Design/methodology/ approach

Medtronic needed a comprehensive, integrated, measurable and global approach to employee wellness.
It’s primary focus was putting the critical factors of prevention and early detection at the forefront of its employee health rewards.

Medtronic’s Total Health global employee wellness brand focused on investing in health rather than the cost of treatment and improving employee health through behaviour change. Seeing that the web was critical to delivery and collection of information in this environment it sought an online health and wellbeing platform with the capability to be deployed globally.

The ability to monitor and measure health and wellbeing across the organisation was also vital in giving Medtronic key insight, through analytics, into the impact that employee health had on the business.

Findings

Implications…

Initial health assessments conducted through the online platform have provided essential baseline data to understand overall global health trends as well as territory specific differences and priorities. Medtronic has been able to establish an average employee health score. Digging deeper it has noted priority health indicators for our global employees based on the number who are recorded to be
‘at risk’ in each case.

Successful use of analytics and web based tools has helped Medtronic accelerate towards its vision of personalised, consistent wellbeing support for all employees. It now has greater insight into their health status to define the right strategy, and the tools to drive targeted initiatives where they are needed.

...George Orwell conveys his thoughts and feelings to the reader by using different language devices. One language device he uses is superlatives such as ‘immense’ which empathises the size of the crowd and engages the reader, but is also shown to be ostracized from the large crowd as he is constantly referred to as the ‘white man’ this shows how insignificant he is from the crowd as he name is not often used. Another device used is colloquialism ‘it was a bit of fun to them’ and ‘excited’ I believe this is used to create unity between the reader and the author which sways the reader’s justification of the article to be positive. In addition a proliferation of negativity towards elephants such as ‘I had got to shoot the elephant’ showing an opposite side of the article, portraying the views of the natives, them being that the elephant had to be gotten rid of due to it ruining their lives. This creates a chance for the reader to change their opinions on elephants and to make a clearer conclusion. The tone of the piece is quite depressing and negative, although some language devices were used to make parts of the article positive the overall feeling in the article does not show that. I think that many parts of the article show that what George Orwell did was distressed which makes the article quite miserable, however I felt he did realise his actions were wrong which allows the reader to make a more comprehensive explanation of the tone....

...Assess the view that religion is a conservative force Religion is seen as a conservative force which means that some people believe that the role of religion is to maintain things the same or maintaining the status quo. Various groups believe that this is something positive and others believe that is something negative, Marxists regard this as being negative. Marxists believe that society is divided in the working class and the bourgeois class, where the bourgeois oppress the working class. They say that religion is one of the tools that the bourgeoisie uses to prevent a communist revolution of the proletariat, as religion provides compensation with the promise of an afterlife and obscures the authorship of human oppression which creates a false consciousness, this prevents the poor from reacting to change their situation and maintains the status quo, which benefits the upper class. Marx himself believed that who controls the means of production is able to control everything, he has a famous quote which says that religion is `` the opium of the people´´, in other words it causes the proletariat to be separated or losing control of what they produce as they are like drugged with religion, and following the theory of Marx, it makes the working class to continue to be oppressed by the upper class and thus maintaining things the same over and over again. This theory is also considered too deterministic as it assumes that if you are working class you are going to be......

...International Journal of Market Research Vol. 54 Issue 4 Children’s attitudinal reactions to TV advertisements The African experience Ayantunji Gbadamosi Robert E. Hinson University of Ghana University of East London Eddy K. Tukamushaba Irene Ingunjiri Strathmore University Hong Kong Polytechnic University This paper is aimed at exploring African children’s attitudinal reactions to television advertisements . A total of 65 children from four African countries – Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda – participated in 12 focus group discussions on the subject matter . Findings suggest that they like television advertising in relation to its entertainment features – especially when the messages feature children characters, cartoons, music, celebrities and humour – and those promoting foods . They also derive excitement from advertising messages that are presented in Pidgin language and/or humorously integrated with local languages . However, they have an aversion to messages that terrify them and those they consider boring . This paper supplements the existing literature on the attitudes of children to advertising, but from Africa as a different contextual platform . It also suggests directions for the effective use of marketing communications strategies in relation to television advertising for marketers and other bodies with special roles in communicating with children such as government agencies and NGOs . Introduction Advertising to children as a topic has......
