This nine-question survey provides you with immediate individualized feedback including tools and local and national resources to address well being.

How to Access the App

If you have never downloaded the app:

Simply search for VITAL WorkLife in your app store, download the app and enter your organization’s login credentials.

If you have downloaded the app:

The new version of the app was released as an update, so you will not need to re-download the app.

  • If your device is set to do automatic updates, you will only need to re-enter your login credentials when you open the app.
  • If you do not have automatic updates set up, then you will need to manually update the app (like you would for any other app) and then re-enter your login credentials when you open it.

Why do I have to log in again?

Because the new version of the app is on a different platform, you will need to enter your organization’s username and password the first time you log in.

What if I don’t remember my username and password?

Your organizational contact for VITAL WorkLife will have your username and password—or you can call VITAL WorkLife at 877.731.3949 to request your log in credentials.
