HWI Logic Model: Text Only Version

This graphic shows the components of the Healthier Worksite Initiative (HWI) logic model. It shows that inputs, such as management support, funding, HWI staff, agency input (e.g., HWI Advisory Committee, HWI Work Group), scientific evidence, and communication systems, affect major activities, like formative research.

Formative research is conducted through an employee needs assessment, policy audits, environmental audits, preventive benefits audit, literature reviews, exploratory research, and pre-testing. From the formative research, other major activities like policy development, environmental interventions, programs, and demonstration projects are developed. These major activities then affect short-term outcomes, including the implementation and promotion of resulting policies, environmental interventions, and programs, which in turn affect long-term outcomes.

HWI defines its long-term outcomes as an increase in physical activity levels, improved nutrition, increased participation in health screenings, and an increase in other healthy choices by CDC employees, all resulting in an increase in healthy days reported by CDC employees.

The transition from each "stage" of the logic model is represented graphically with an arrow. Translation and dissemination of HWI components for other federal and state agencies, organizations, and businesses to access and use and evaluation span the logic model, and are an important component of each stage.
