About the Scorecard
The HERO Employee Health Management (EHM)
Best Practices Scorecard is designed to help organizations learn
about EHM best practices – and discover opportunities to improve
their programs and measure progress over time.
Developed in consultation with leading authorities on EHM, the

guide strategic planning. Covering six foundational elements of
EHM -- Strategic Planning, Leadership Engagement, Program-Level
Management, Programs, Engagement Methods and Measurement and

practices in each area. These practices have been assigned
