Case Study: Deloitte

We worked with Deloitte on “The C-Suite’s Role in Well-Being” study in order to understand what the C-Suite’s role in well-being is, and how their employees rate their own well-being.  Between February 8th and February 21st, 2022, 2,100 C-Suite executives and employees from the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia were surveyed about their well-being in the workplace; including aspects of physical, mental, financial, social, and overall wellbeing.


“We worked with WI to better understand how C-suite leaders can improve both their employees’ and their own well-being. Their incredibly thoughtful approach in creating a robust survey resulted in a provocative piece of research that I believe will help both leaders and employees create positive change in their workplace cultures.”
– Chief Well-Being Officer, Deloitte US

  • Nearly 70% of the C-Suite would quit for a job that better supports their well-being.
