The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Health Promotion as "a behavioral social science that draws from the biological, environmental,
psychological, physical and medical sciences to promote health and prevent disease, disability and premature death through education-driven voluntary behavior change activities." What is required to successfully fulfill this definition varies across each community.
There are certainly best practice examples of what has worked for other areas that can serve as a platform for others; however, the combination of findings from both Engagement and Technology in YOUR community programs will then drive Policy within YOUR workplace.
Workplace Policies can include:
The role of your wellness committee
What engagement incentives are realistic and measureable
Environmental and community collaboratives
Flex time for employees to exercise during their workday
Tobacco free campuses
No soda vending machines
Incentives for annual screens
You can theorize what your workplace needs before you implement a program; or you can determine what is realistic for your employees after you have the data to back up your policy decisions.
