Tryg Insurance & Woba

Reading time: 3 min.

Tryg Insurance is the largest workers’ compensation insurance company in Denmark and the second largest in the Nordics. Tryg today helps more than 80,000 business customers and 530,000 employees to make the working day safer by converting expert knowledge into simple and valuable insurances.



The Challenges

Tryg Insurance made their first contact with Woba at the beginning of 2019, where they made it clear what specific challenges they had experienced with their previous digital supplier of Health and Safety Risk Assessments (APV) to their customers.

Tryg wanted to offer their customers the statutory Health and Safety Risk Assessment, so that they could comply with the working environment legislation without much hassle. The problem was quite simply that the tool did not automate all legally required steps in the process, so customers had to spend a lot of time and effort to comply with the legislation.

1 out of the 5 steps in the Health and Safety Risk Assessment is that the Working Environment Authority requires companies to prepare and implement an action plan with a focus on improving the risk areas of the Health and Safety Risk Assessment results.

Part of the problem was that companies had to wait months to get their results in the form of reports – and when the reports finally arrived, they spent additional months translating their results into actionable measures. Tryg therefore became curious as to whether there was a digital tool that could make it easy and automatic to deliver all steps – and here they came across Woba.



The solution: Tryg + Woba

Tryg Insurance had for some time flirted with the idea of collaborating with a digital platform that could solve their Health and Safety Risk Assessment challenges. Tryg quickly found that Woba could do this, and shortly before Christmas in 2019, Tryg chose to enter into a strategic co-branding collaboration with the platform. Tryg chose Woba for several reasons, but the main reason for their final decision was:

We chose to enter into a strategic collaboration with Woba because it is a unique solution. It is our assessment that Woba is the only one who has incorporated their deep expertise in the field of occupational health and prevention into one simple and intuitive platform. This means that our customers i.a. can complete all Health and Safety Risk Assessment steps completely automatically

Tryg Insurance therefore chose to make Woba their primary Health and Safety Risk Assessment supplier for their customer base at the start of 2020. The strategic collaboration between Tryg and Woba will be launched in June 2020, where they will offer their customers to complete the statutory Health and Safety Risk Assessment, so that they can live 100 % up to the legal requirements in an easy and clear way.



What does the Woba solution consist of?

  • A complete statutory system for completing the Health and Safety Risk Assessment – completely automatically questionnaires for all industries and sectors.
  • Answering measurements on all devices: PC, tablet and via the Wobas smartphone app.
  • Employee access to own personal results, scores and e-learning tools to promote well-being and the working environment.
  • Manager access to Woba’s analysis tool (dashboard) with automatic results – both reports and comment analyzes can be viewed and downloaded across the entire company.
  • Manager access to the real-time Risk Map, where HR and all local managers can identify and act on health and safety risks for sickness absence with a simple login.
  • Manager access to automatic recommendations for action measures to prevent the Health and Safety Risk Assessment’s designated risk areas.
  • Gives HR, AMR and local managers the data insights to make targeted decisions to prevent workplace health issues – instead of relying on outdated data and intuition.
  • Make it easy for Tryg’s customers to collect, understand and act preventively on the Health and Safety Risk Assessment challenge before the damage has occurred.

Furthermore, the Woba team has succeeded in making it easy for companies to collect all their important employee data on the health, safety and well-being level in one complete system. This enables both us and our customers to gain the data insights to be able to prevent costly staff turnover and sick leave in real time, before the damage has occurred

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 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.
