Faxe Municipality & Woba

Reading time: 3 min.

Faxe is a municipality in Region Zealand which has over 250 workplaces with just over 2,600 employees.



1.5 years ago, HR from Faxe Municipality contacted Woba as they were looking for a digital questionnaire system that could modernize their previous solution. HR described that they had previously spent an unnecessary amount of time and effort on a time-consuming process.

In other words, it took them ages to get started, they had to wait months for the reports, then spend months translating the results into action. HR was therefore quite frustrated to know that they only had access to an outdated picture of how their employees are feeling.


Solution – Faxe Municipality + Woba

Shortly after the meeting, Faxe Municipality chose to say yes to Woba’s offer.

The primary reason was that Faxe Kommune believed that Woba – far better than the other solutions on the market – could solve their challenges and at the same time modernize and automate their previous workflow with the data results from questionnaire surveys.

The HR manager from Faxe Municipality says in this context that:

It is no secret that employees who have a high level of well-being also solve their core tasks more efficiently and have fewer sick days, and we see Woba as the tool that puts us in HR and the local managers at the workplaces able to translate the employees’ feedback into concrete improvement measures in an easier and more efficient way than seen so far“.


Results with Woba

Until now, Woba has delivered the following results to Faxe Municipality:
A 100% statutory APV and HR system for Faxe Municipality’s ALT evaluation (Health and Safety Assessment, Management and Engagement Evaluation).

An industry-specific Health and Safety Assessment, Management evaluation and Engagement measurement for their 250 workplaces with 2600 employees, as well as tailored questions for selected locations.

Answering measurements on all devices: PC, tablet and via Woba’s smartphone app with access to your own personal results, scores and e-learning tools to promote well-being and the working environment.

A real-time Risk Map, where HR and all local managers can identify and act on health and safety risks, dissatisfaction and dissatisfaction with management skills with a simple login.

Solved a major problem for HR and the local managers by automatically translating their results into concrete recommendations to prevent and reduce risk areas. As a result, managers can now make more targeted decisions about improvements without basing them on intuition and gut feelings – but instead on solid data.


Assigned the managers and employees a common language to be able to work with preventive strategies based on the employees’ knowledge and experience.


In other words, Woba has given Faxe Municipality access to new data insights that have enabled them to get an overall real-time overview of workplace well-being.

This has meant that HR no longer has to worry about spending time and resources on understanding and sending out hundreds of reports to their workplaces.

Now all managers get access to them in real time, and HR can use their freed up time to create meaningful dialogues and initiatives based on the employees’ current knowledge and experience. Easy, time-saving and valuable.

Merkur Cooperative Bank Strengthens Well-being by 13% in Just One Year with Woba

Merkur Cooperative Bank, Denmark’s leading values-based financial institution, has enhanced diversity and well-being in the workplace with the assistance of Woba.io. Discover how Merkur utilized Woba’s platform and guidance to achieve impressive results in the work environment.


Challenge: Diversity and Inclusion at the Organizational Level

Merkur Cooperative Bank has a central goal: to create a workplace characterized by diversity, inclusivity, and equality. They aimed to establish an attractive workplace that could attract new talents while fostering happier and more engaged employees. Employees were to feel that everyone is treated fairly, irrespective of gender, age, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or other differences. Simultaneously, it was crucial for them that diversity and inclusion initiatives were not merely a management focus but were also palpable throughout the organization.


Solution: Valuable Insights to Measure, Understand, and Act

Merkur Cooperative Bank implemented Woba’s platform for their annual well-being assessments and mandatory workplace assessments (APV). With Woba, they acquired the right tools to measure and gain direct insights from employees to understand the diversity in the work environment.

Merkur was particularly pleased with the opportunity to combine quantitative and qualitative insights in their surveys. This not only provided an overall picture of general well-being but also allowed for a deeper understanding by analyzing comments from individual employees.

Lastly, Woba made it easy for them to translate all the collected feedback from employees into concrete action plans in areas where improvement was needed, both at the organizational and departmental levels.

The platform is intuitive and easy to handle. I have especially been very pleased with the automatic presentation and risk map,” says Katrine Rosengren Norup, HR Manager at Merkur Cooperative Bank.

Energi Viborg increases response rate and well-being with Woba

Energi Viborg is committed to promoting well-being within their organization and collaborates closely with Woba to achieve this goal.


We prioritize well-being at Energi Viborg,” says Dorte Danielsen, Executive Secretary/HR at Energi Viborg.


Together with Kira, their Customer Success Manager from Woba, we have explored how Energi Viborg has adapted the Woba platform to develop their own approach to well-being work with the aim of increasing response rates and enhancing employee well-being using Woba.


The Challenge: A declining response rate to well-being surveys

At Energi Viborg, they used to conduct well-being surveys every other week, asking 5 questions based on the WHO-5 well-being index. However, they faced a challenge as the response rate had dropped below 50%. There was a need for a system that could delve deeper into work-related well-being.

Through collaboration between management, union representatives, and occupational health and safety representatives, it was decided that they needed a system where they could formulate their own questions, customize them for departments, and allow for comments to be added to each question. This led them to choose Woba, which met their needs.


Everything aligned perfectly with our desire to prioritize well-being and not just rely on an annual well-being survey,” Dorte says about the choice of Woba.
