A figure depicts a workplace health model that describes a systematic process of building a workplace health promotion program. The model has four main steps. Step 1 is Assessment which involves three components: organizational, individual, and community assessment. Step 2 is Planning/Workplace Governance which involves five components: leadership support, management, a workplace health improvement plan, dedicated resources, and communications and informatics. Step 3 is Implementation which involves four components: programs, policies, health benefits, and environmental support. Step 4 is Evaluation which involves four components: worker productivity, healthcare costs, improved health outcomes, and organizational change or “creating a culture of health”. Underlying the four steps are contextual factors such as the size of company or industry sector that need to be considered when building a workplace health promotion program.
