Program Benefits


The Work@HealthTM Program is designed to train employers and other participants how to establish, expand and improve science- and practice-based health promotion strategies that will lead to specific, measureable means to reduce chronic disease rates in the workplace. Work@HealthTM training will provide employers with the knowledge and tools to promote good health in their work places to prevent or reduce chronic illness and disability, thereby improving productivity and the competitiveness of employers participating in this training program.

Employers who are selected to participate in the Work@HealthTM Program will receive a variety of benefits, including—

  • A complete health and safety assessment of their organization to define existing needs, interests and the capacity of their worksite for specific health and safety interventions to address those needs
  • Professional training via one of three delivery models to learn how to go about setting up a worksite health intervention plan to meet individual employer needs
  • Technical assistance and community support resources aimed at giving employers what they need to sustain the worksite health promotion interventions beyond the one-year program
  • Up to $5,000 in seed funding to help employers, especially small employers, offset the financial cost of the adopted health promotion intervention(s)
  • The careful monitoring of participants’ progress in implementing their worksite health interventions by professional worksite health trainers and on-going availability of technical assistance
  • An on-going opportunity to expand their network by linking to and partnering with other employers and organizations with a focus on health in their community

  • Certification and recognition of employer participants as healthy worksites
