Summary:

Employee Perceptions of Workplace Health Promotion Programs: Comparison of a Tailored, Semi-Tailored, and Standardised Approach

Workplace Health Promotion Programs Research Article by WMR Researchers
International Journal of Environmental Research & Public Health Vol.15 Issue 5

In the design of workplace health promotion programs (WHPPs), employee perceptions represent an integral variable which is predicted to translate into rate of user engagement (i.e., participation) and program loyalty.

This study evaluated employee perceptions of three workplace health programs promoting nutritional consumption and physical activity.

Programs included: (1) an individually tailored consultation with an exercise physiologist and dietitian; (2) a semi-tailored 12-week SMS health message program; and (3) a standardised group workshop delivered by an expert.
