National Healthy Worksite Program Case Studies

In the case studies below, employer participants in the National Healthy Worksite Program share their progress and challenges in bringing NHWP interventions to their workplaces or improving their existing programs. NHWP was designed to help employers put into action science- and practice-based disease-prevention and wellness strategies that would lead to specific measurable health outcomes to reduce chronic disease rates. From 2013-2015, each employer in the NHWP received support, training, and technical assistance to put in place a combination of program, policy, and environmental interventions to support physical activity, good nutrition, and tobacco-use cessation.
