WPA work does not end with an action plan. Systematic follow-up is crucial to ensure that your dialogue and action plans have an impact. Follow-up is a management task, and it is important this has priority.
Share results with your staff when relevant. Reflect on adjustments to initiatives. There is often a need to follow closely the initiatives that have been launched and regularly consider whether anything needs to be adjusted.
A prerequisite for action is good reflection. It may be a good idea to address the various activities once a month as part of your own management practice and ask yourself:
At unit level, it may be an idea to add follow-up work to a fixed timetable, e.g.:
The more you can incorporate an awareness of well-being and focus on work environment initiatives in your other activities at the unit, the more natural your work on health and safety and the work environment will become. It is important to find an approach, rhythm and cycle that is meaningful and works in the local context.
If your unit needs to follow up by measuring the priority initiatives before the next WPA, it is possible to conduct interim measurements. Work actively with the initiatives for a while before you make your interim measurements (e.g. after 1 year). Read more about interim measurements here.
