Workplace health promotion (WHP) has been defined as the combined efforts of employers, employees and society to improve the health and well-being of people at work.


This is achieved through a combination of

-Improving the work organisation and the working environment
-Promoting the active participation of employees in health activities
-Encouraging personal development

WHP involves:

-Having an organisational commitment to improving the health of the workforce
-Providing employees with appropriate information and establishing comprehensive
-communication strategies
-Involving employees in decision making processes
-Developing a working culture that is based on partnership
-Organising work tasks and processes so that they contribute to, rather than damage, health
-Implementing policies and practices which enhance employee health by making the
-healthy choices the easy choices
-Recognising that organisations have an impact on people and that this is not always
-conducive to their health and well-being

The areas of activity for WHP include life-styles, ageing, corporate culture including staff leadership, staff development, work-life balance, mental health and stress, wellness, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), nutrition and health.
