Evaluation: Pre- and Post-Surveys

Posted on December 6th, 2014 by Seth Nickinson

Here at Project ACT we believe it’s important to evaluate our work and be sincere about whether and how we are making a difference. We also believe in respecting privacy and not scaring people off from their journey to wellness.

Our critical program evaluation tool has been pre- and post-surveys with all of our participating companies and organizations.


The tool answers key questions such as:

  • What are our attitudes related to healthy lifestyles?
  • Do people believe their employer cares about their wellness?
  • Are people participating in wellness activities?
  • What are people’s practices related to diet and activity?
  • Have people adopted new behaviors that promote wellness?
  • Are there suggestions for our workplace wellness program?

We also always use the survey as a chance to recruit “champions.”

The exact survey questions are modified to each employer’s needs, but here we share one example each of a pre- and post-survey.
