Factors Driving Exemplary Workplace Health and Well-Being Initiatives

Research proves there's power in establishing a workplace that prioritizes employee well-being.

Long-tenured workplace health promotion professionals know that successful health and well-being initiatives require more than evidence-based interventions alone. The most effective initiatives are supported by solid strategic plans with measurable goals, active and genuine leadership support, supportive and aligned policies, a workplace environment that contributes to well-being, and ongoing measurement and evaluation.

Unfortunately, recently published industry surveys indicate most employers are not taking this type of comprehensive approach to their initiatives. I am excited to have collaborated with my co-editor, Sara Johnson, on the January 2020 issue of The Art of Health Promotion, which spotlights exemplary health promotion initiatives and identifies the factors underlying their success. A PDF of the full issue is now available on the American Journal of Health Promotion website. See the research report here.
