Abstract:Objective: People with high well-being face challenges effectively and have success in multiple areas of life, including work. This makes it important for employers to manage the well-being of their staff. The aim of this study was to create a lifestyle check (LSC) for employees at the University of Twente (UT) that can measure well-being and be utilized by the UT’s lifestyle coaches. Method: This was done by finding existing constructs regarding relevant topics, measuring the psychometrics of the resulting LSC through t-tests and Cronbach’s Alpha, and measuring the acceptance of the LSC’s target group with UTAUT. Results: All four measures had adequate reliability except for pain and the validity was only acceptable for smoking because no adequately similar reference populations were available for the others. The UTAUT factors had no significant effect on the acceptance of the LSC but the feedback was positive. Conclusions: Though the validity could not be reliably verified, the reliability of most LSC constructs is acceptable and the feedback of the target audience was largely positive. Despite that there is still room for improvement, it can be said that the new LSC is a successful first step in development.
